We will be viewing The Future of Food on Wednesday, Oct. 29th at 6:30pm in FPH 104.

REVERSE TRICK O’ TREATING

On Thursday– at 7pm–we will be hitting the pavement to deliver chocolates to Hampshire College. We will have multiple groups going out and visiting Hampshirites to talk about fair trade chocolate. We are doing this the day before Halloween.

HAMPSHIRE HALLOWEEN EAT-IN (POTLUCK)

This Friday at 12pm, Hampshire Slow Food will be hosting an autumn potluck to celebrate the season and its food. Come by Mod 10 (in Greenwich) to indulge in seasonal eats and great company. Tell you friends and spread the word. Use the season’s harvest to prepare a fantastic meal. You can even bring ingredients with you and prepare something “live” at Mod 10!!! Have the best lunch you have had this semester by attending this awesome event complete with goodies from Get Baked.

Please take note of all of these events and spread the word. If you have any questions about anything mentioned here (or not mentioned) please comment or email us at slowfoodhampshire@gmail.com!!!

Onward We Go

September 27, 2008

Hello everyone, now that we have found our organizational base, we have some interesting events lined up.

Firstly, we will not be having weekly chat sessions any longer. The purpose of those three meetings was to see what the campus wanted to see and how we could make it happen.

On the other hand, Tam and I are opening our home every Monday at 7 pm to any who would like to come and eat dinner with us. This set up is incredibly casual. You can bring your own meal or a dish to share. Or if you really want to splurge, you can provide Tam and/or I with funds and we can prepare a meal for the group. The point of this is to promote community eating without putting too much pressure on the community. SLOW FOOD ONLY though. I feel I should let that be known.

Secondly, our first major and continuous event will be the Hampshire Slow Food Film Festival. This festival will convene five times during this semester, dates to be determined. Our first film will be Chocolat. We felt that this film will be a light, enjoyable romp about food’s influence and power. It will be followed up with more educational fare in weeks to come.

Lastly, we will be participating in Hampshire Halloween in October. How? That has not been set in stone but we are considering having an eat-in or simply providing food for the masses come Halloween.

Please keep all of these events in mind throughout your days and weeks.

For community eating with Tam and Tannis visit Mod 10 in Greenwich. Email us with any questions at slowfoodhampshire@gmail.com
