SOUTH DALLAS A community cooked for Paul Quinn College and its organic farm this week. Over a dozen top-line Dallas chefs helmed food prep stations for the big fundraiser that awarded $200K to the school. Participating chefs included Matte Balke from Bolsa Mercado, Tim Bevins from Craft, Randall Copeland and Nathan Tate from Ava/Boulevardier, Central 214’s Graham Dodds, Brent Hammer from Hibiscus, Jeff Harris from Bolsa, Matt McCallister from FT33, Jason Maddy from Oak, Janice Provost from Parigi, Jon Stevens from Nosh/Snack and Tre Wilcox of Marquee. The college donates 10 percent of its crops to combat the surrounding "food desert" in the neighborhood. [D SideDish]
