56th annual All Tomato Luncheon set for Saturday


WARREN — As part of the Bradley County Pink Tomato Festival, the annual All Tomato Luncheon will be held at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the First Baptist Church Activities Center at Warren.

Tickets are $12 and can be purchased from the Chamber of Commerce or Bradley County Extension Office.

The Bradley County Extension Homemakers clubs started the All Tomato Luncheon one year after the first Pink Tomato Festival. The All Tomato Luncheon has grown over the years and is now one of the highlights of the Pink Tomato Festival, according to a spokesman.

The EHC ladies plan and prepare the menu, which includes a tomato product in each item served. This year’s menu consists of tomato stuffed chicken breast with mashed potatoes and gravy, tomato green beans, rolls with tomato topping, and heavenly tomato cake.

Tickets are limited.
