This week: the food-security connection

Speaking of Local 121, the Providence restaurant continues to offer some informative events, such as this one on Thursday:

On Thursday, May 1st from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., Local 121 presents Real Meals from Local Fields. Local 121 brings you into the food security movement, a movement that shows how our food system is connected, how our food grows, how it’s processed, who grows it, what we eat, where it comes from, who goes hungry and why. Participants include Carpenter’s Grist Mill, Farm Fresh Rhode Island, Narragansett Creamery, Olga’s Cup and Saucer, Matonuck Oyster Farm, Red Planet Vegetables, Sosnowski Farms, Southside Community Land Trust, Urban Greens Food Coop, and Whole Foods Market. 


The event is free and open to the public. Guests will have the opportunity to sample locally raised food, sign up for a CSA and learn more about the food security. Whole Foods has donated a basket of local products that will be raffled off that evening. Local 121 is providing free appetizers as well as cash bar.
