GREENFIELD — Building off the success of a free harvest dinner for Federal Street School families last year, the school decided to host the event again Friday night — serving a meal to over 200 registered attendees.

“It’s really for the community of the school, and our families, to get a night out,” said Associate Principal Nancy Putnam. “It’s to celebrate and take care of our families.”

The evening featured a cider-making activity, board games and a performance by the school choir.

Faculty and staff served the meal, with food all coming from donations.

The University of Massachusetts’ Cold Spring Orchard provided apples for the cider.

And several local businesses — OESCO, the Trail TOC diner and three Friendly’s venues in Northampton, Florence and Hadley — donated rolls, butter and vegetables for the dinner.

Baystate Franklin Medical Center provided cookies for dessert.
