Food Day event brings local food and farmers to Lebanon, Oregon
Ten Rivers Food Web’s East Linn Chapter is partnering with Samaritan Hospital and COMP-Northwest to bring Food Day back to Linn County.
Food Day is a nationally recognized celebration devoted to food security and the local food movement. On October 24th, communities all over the country will celebrate nutritious, locally-grown foods and the people who grow them.
Over 200 people attended last year's event in Lebanon, which featured several local vendors, including Adaptive Seeds, Open Oak Farm, Willamette Seed and Grain (Living Culture episode 74), Fraga Farm Goat Cheese, and Rain Shadow El Rancho (Living Culture episode 67), among many others.
This year's event will have an apple peeling demonstration, grain grinding demonstration, and cooking tutorials with local produce. For more information, visit Ten Rivers Food Web.
