Food is Essential to all of us

food eventSubmitted by Champion, Amanda Costello

Each day we anticipate we will find food in our stores and on our plates at the table, but how does this come to be with such regularity, and will it continue to happen?

We have heard of health hazards in the existing food chain and about the relative merits of local food, so it makes sense to think further together about how to limit the former and increase the latter. How can we manage that?

Responding to the Call of the Land – Building a Community Supported Food System, an event on September 14th in Keene and September 15th in Peterborough, is designed to address these issues with nationally known speakers and knowledgeable local people currently involved in our regional food system.

2:00 – 5:00pm      Presentation, Discussion, & Conversation
5:30 – 6:30pm      Buffet Supper      
6:30 – 8:45pm      Public Presentation & Discussion

Saturday, Sept. 15th  – Peterborough Historical Society, 19 Grove St., Peterborough
9:30am – 12:00pm   Presentation & Discussion
