Food Day Success

Posted on October 20, 2011 by in Activities, Announcements, Product

Thank you to everyone who supported the Food Day event and helped to make it a success!  We want to give special thanks to the Central Coop of Seattle (Madison Market).  They donated a portion of the wonderful fruit which was processed and served, as well as the beautiful array of cheeses.  Central Coop even provided valuable insight about which cheeses paired best with the fruits we were serving!

Over 40 people attended, many of whom were not affiliated with Antioch and there were many comments about how wonderful the snacks were!  In the end 32 people the signed a petition in support of the Food Day principles and it was mailed to Washington DC.  We are very excited about what opportunities may result from the relationships we developed from being involved in this wonderful event.
