Grow Food Amherst invites all members of the community to gather for a potluck meal to celebrate National Food Day on Thursday, October 24th from 6-8 PM in the Large Activity Room of the Bangs Community Center. Everyone is asked to bring a dish to share prepared with items from their garden, CSA, local farm or local food store (as much as possible), their own plate and utensils, and an index card with a list of ingredients for those with food allergies.
The group will also have a photo board on hand so that people may share photos of their gardens or prepared dishes.
“The main idea behind Food Day is to raise awareness of the importance of eating fresh, local and healthy food” said Amherst’s Sustainability Coordinator, Stephanie Ciccarello.
“We are so fortunate in this valley to have an abundance of incredible local produce that Food Day seemed the perfect opportunity to gather and share a meal that reflects that bounty”.
For more information, please contact Stephanie Ciccarello at (413) 259-3149 or via e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please let us know you plan to attend by signing up below.
