Food
for thought
and FOR fun!

Our chapter organizes workshops, potlucks and other events and projects throughout the year. We celebrate local and seasonal flavors. We showcase our region's chefs, farmers, and artisan producers. We host talks about food history and policy. We work to strengthen the connections of local food community members and educate the public about the importance of knowing where our food comes from.
