Food for Thought Event!

Posted Sep 19 2011 8:06pm

If you're in the Calgary area, here's a must-not-miss event! I'll be there volunteering for LEAF  which is a Community Partner for the event.

Food For Thought

Saturday, October 15 from 6-10 pm
McMahon Stadium, East Entrance
(Absolute Baseball Academy kwansit hut next to Viper Stadium)

REAP Business Association is proud to host, with the support of Community Natural Foods, First Calgary Financial, and Calgary Herald, a wonderful event in celebration of local sustainable food and farmers!

The 2nd annual Food For Thought will showcase local sustainable farmers and producers, paired with restaurants and catering companies who already adore and promote their products, and offer tastings to our attendees while giving everyone a chance to talk to our farmers and chefs directly.

After the greeting and eating we will be premiering a documentary called  In the Same Boat , which features the stories of an Alberta farming family and a Newfoundland fishing family, both of whom have been impacted by industrialized agriculture. The filmmaker, Rachel Bower, will lead a discussion about the importance of local, sustainable food systems after the film.

Doors open at 6:00 pm
Curtain at 8:30 pm
Tickets are $25 and available at  Community Natural Foods locations  or  on our website .
This event sold out last year, so advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. Any remaining tickets will be available for purchase at the door.
