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
