The first annual Food Day is coming up on Monday, October 24th! Maybe you're celebrating by putting in a winter garden or cooking an all-local meal or savoring a meal at one of our local restaurants. If you don't yet have plans -- or even if you do! -- please join us for a celebration of Food Day through film and community.
Starting at 5:30, the Community Food Council for Del Norte and Adjacent Tribal Lands and Community Assistance Network will be hosting a Food Day event at the Del Norte School District Office at 301 Washington Blvd. We will celebrate the newly-elected Food Council representatives with a half-hour mixer with food and drinks. At 6pm, we will show a collection of short documentary films highlighting various parts of our food system from farm to waste stream. They are thought-provoking, funny, and inspiring. I hope you'll join the viewing and a post-film conversation.
