Food Day Weekend in Somerville is on!
Mark your calendars - with a thick marker.
by guest blogger Erica Satin-Hernandez
Somerville Food Day Weekend is just around the corner (partayyyy!) In honor of Food Day, a national, annual day inspiring work towards food security and food justice, the Somerville Mobile Farmer’s Market is hosting two Somerville-style Food Day Parties!
Come on out on:
Learn about urban vegetable growing and composting; sign up to share urban gardening space; help map out our city’s food resources, swap recipes, win a raffle (with prizes!), and of course buy fresh organic produce (see pictures above) at wholesale prices! All are welcome, there will be music and fun and all your full-price purchases help sustain our EBT discount program which brings fresh, local produce to low income residents.
Tweet us at @ShapeUpSam and #SomervilleFoodDay14 to let us know how you’ll celebrate Food Day.
