Come see SFSA at the University of Arizona's Food Day fair. Food Day is a nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable and sustainably produced food and a grassroots campaign for better food policies held each year in October. Each year, thousands of events all around the country bring Americans together to celebrate and enjoy real food and to push for improved food policies. On Wednesday, Oct. 14, the University of Arizona will host its own celebration from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on the UA Mall. Join Slow Food Southern Arizona amongst over 40 UA Campus and Tucson community exhibitors for this fun, interactive event with giveaways, free food samples and more!
Demonstrating, Educating, Celebrating The motto of the Festival expresses how this family event is as much a community expo as it is a celebration of local and regional actions promoting sustainability. Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival provides a popular annual event that brings together key individuals, organizations, and companies in our community who are working to help us not just envision but also create a resilient future for Tucson and Southern Arizona.
This Festival is your opportunity to share what’s happening now and explore what each of us individually and all of us as a community can do.
READING AT THE TABLE
At a time when American appetites were moving toward convenience and TV dinners and all fine restaurants served French food (in his opinion not very good French food), Craig Claiborne took over the food and restaurant section of the New York Times, changed the art of food writing, and introduced his readers to the excitement of world cuisines and exotic ingredients.
Thank you Mr. Claiborne!
We’ll gather at the home of one of our readers on November 15th at 3pm to talk about the book and share our own culinary creations inspired by the reading.
Please sign up now, so we know you're reading with us, or for more information on our group, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Reading at the Table” in the subject line.
