Join the Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park and MP Olivia Chow at the 100 mile potluck dinner picnic on July 11th, 2007, 6pm to 8pm. It will take place north of the Queen St. W. gates in the circle.
Did you know that when the average North American sits down to eat, each ingredient has typically travelled at least 1,500 miles, sometimes even further. This is bad for our environment and especially not healthy, nor as fresh.
As the summer meanders on our local Ontario produce will be bountiful. Eating fresh, healthy, local organic foods will be easier than ever. Please come out and participate in this wonderful event, it's going to be delicious, educational and fun.
So, your challenge, should you chose to accept it is - make your dish with ingredients that are as local and sustainable as possible! Three easy steps;
- Buy your ingredients at, oh let's say the Trinity Bellwoods Farmers Market.
- Share your dish with your friends and neighbours.
- Don't forget your own plates and cutlery!
Please call Olivia Chow's office at 416.533.2710 to RSVP with your dish.
Added bonus, Debbie Field of Food Share will be the guest speaker. For more information about Food Share go to www.foodshare.ca
*In case of rain, the dinner will take place in the Trinity Recreation Community Centre at 155 Crawford (right beside where we'll be if it doesn't rain - but it's not going to!).
