Field to Table Institute

The Field to Table Institute, at SCC’s Dardenne Creek Campus

The Field to Table Institute brings together culinary, agriculture and healthcare, teaching the concept of going directly from the field to the table, and the connection between farming, food, health care and quality of life. In addition to credit programs, the Field to Table Institute also offers community-based courses in food, gardening, health and sustainability.



Established in 2019, the Field to Table Institute is located at the Dardenne Creek Campus, next to the Center for Healthy Living, in Dardenne Prairie. The building, previously a gym, was transformed into a beautiful and modern space that features a bakery, test kitchen, commercial kitchen and brewing lab. A grant through Missouri’s Workforce Initiative covered most of the renovation costs. The Center was named a finalist in the St. Louis Buisness Journal’s Building St. Louis Awards 2021. The campus renovation was regionally recognized in the Public/Private Project Less-Than-$10 Million category based on its community impact and design.
