Thank you to all who came out and participated in the third annual Local Foods Festival Tuesday morning! The gloomy morning weather did not deter people from attending and sporting their Local Foods Festival reusable bag – made from recycled PET (#1) plastic! The reusable bag wasn’t the only staple of the event – organic suckers, fresh pretzels, free water bottles, and even local Honeybees were there!
A new feature this year was “How many miles did this food travel?” My personal favorite – the Purple Ribbon Beef tent – traveled 59 miles with delicious bbq beef sticks. Another tent had fresh veggies from Salama Greenhouse, only 12 miles away. These are just a couple examples of great locally grown or produced goods at the festival.
More than 120 Adventure2 employee participants stopped by the WellBeing table
and earned their 40 points! Don’t forget to keep a look out for more events – just like this one – for more point earning opportunities!
That’s a wrap on Local Foods Festival 2017. Hopefully you will attend again for 2018’s “Adventure in Eating!”
