Food Matters Recap Added on November 1st, 2014
Judy Deming writes,
The subject of food has so many possibilities, and our speakers covered a lot:
- Brooke Pickering-Cole introduced us to the exciting new Hudson Valley Farm Hub project, which will come to affect all of our local farmers and our local food.
- Rachel Robinson told us about the diet, nutrition, and shopping services available to anyone, free of charge, at our supermarkets (She is at ShopRite). Who knew?
- Margaret Gagnon , an expert in community resources, introduced us to the many services available to our population, regarding food and health.
- And John Novi, entertaining and skilled chef at DePuy Canal House, is an example of how our local restaurants are making creative use of local foods and bring in the public with such plans as: grandparent/grandchild cooking classes.
We really had fun with this one, as we batted around ideas and worked out details. We've gotten lots of feedback and are already thinking about next year, which will be bigger and better. We hope that some of you will join us with your ideas and help.
