Group to Serve ‘Lunch for Dinner,’ Discuss Local Food
Reservations must be made on the Food for Thought website.
Recent years have shown a strong push toward preserving and enhancing local food systems, a movement that the Food for Thought group in Concord has fully embraced. The group continues its mission tonight with the Feast on Concord's Food: Dinner and Report Highlights event.
Community members met last month with Christina Gibson and Jamie Pottern, graduate students at the Conway School of Landscape Architecture, and leaders of the Community Food Report effort. The duo presented a report on local food, specifying how and where it’s grown, and what can happen with it moving forward.
Pottern said at the time that a goal of the presentations was to illustrate the current reality versus the vision for a local food supply."
Tonight at 6:30 p.m., the duo, and the Food for Thought movement, return with a new report based on recent food workshop findings. A presentation will center on food and agriculture as they relate to Concord. Attendees will then have a chance to offer opinions, as well as insight into what they would like to see with local food.
Those wishing to attend must RSVP by signing up at the Food For Thought website. The charge to attend is $6.
A special “Lunch for Dinner” will be served prior to the presentation. Alden Cadwell, Director of School Food Service for Concord Schools and Concord Carlisle High School, will prepare a menu including B. Good Burgers, potato oven fries from Verrill Farm and apple crisp.
The event will be held at the Willard School auditorium and cafeteria. The final food report with information and recommendations is expected to be presented to the town on March 31.
