Let Us Eat Local On September 21 (and til the end of time)

A few weeks ago I got connected to the Just Food folks.  As their homepage states, “Just Food works to increase access to fresh, healthy food in NYC and to support the local farms and urban gardens that grow it.

Local food is something I’m very passionate about.  It has been integrated as much as possible in the recipes and vendors I work with including Union Square Greenmarket, McCarren Park, and the various non-farmer food vendors I meet at Brooklyn Flea/Smorgasburg.

On September 21, Just Food will be having their major event of the season called Let Us Eat Local featuring food from local farmers, vendors, and restaurants.  In addition, there will be an auction for everything from tasting menus at high end restaurants to cooking classes.

The catch is that the event is $175, but I justify the cost for 3 reasons:

  1. you’ll have a chance to try amazing food
  2. you’ll support an honorable non-profit
  3. $110 of the cost is tax-deductable

Interested?  At the very least poke your head around their site and see for yourself whether it’s a cause worth supporting.
