THE WALLACE CENTERS OF IOWA: sustainable food & civility initiatives

Farm to Table Dining

Eat fresh and local

Farm to Table Thursdays at Wallace House

You can’t get more local than this! Chef Katie takes our farm produce, adds protein from other Iowa farms and businesses, and transforms them into satisfying dishes. Vegetables are the stars here, with seasonal sides available for sharing around your table.

Each week’s menu includes a selection of favorites, plus a special appetizer, entree, and dessert inspired by the farm. Side dishes change often, depending on what was harvested fresh that week. Menus are usually posted on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Weekly through December 13. No dinner November 22 because of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Bring your own wine or beer; no corkage fee. Reservations strongly recommended. Call 515.243.7063 or email Deborah.

Please note: a 3.5% transaction fee is added for credit/debit card payments.

Private Dining

Celebrate any of your special occasions with a private gathering at the Wallace House. Chef Katie will customize a farm to table menu that fits your tastes and budget. Seating is available for up to 40; stand-up events can accommodate about 60.

To inquire about dates or menus, call 515.243.7063 or email Deborah.

Please note: a 3.5% will be added for credit/debit card payments.
