Come to our Food Day event, including a five course meal at Lento and the debut of Food Mythbusters, the first of a series of short videos on the myths that support industrial agriculture! Space is limited, reserve you place soon! more info here
Food Day is a nationwide celebration of and movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food culminating in a day of action on October 24 every year. Food Day aims to bring us closer to a food system with “real food” that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it.
