Next WFC Event: "Eating Locally, Thinking Globally"

You are invited to a monumental event I've been planning for the past couple of months. I'm very passionate about sustainable food (part of eating "weird food" is using all parts of the animal and minimizing waste) and have long wanted to do something educational on a bigger scale.

Collaborating with my alma mater we have brought to you "Eating Locally, Thinking Globally".

Enjoy an afternoon of locally-sourced food and wine while learning more about the movements for local and sustainable food.

Experience the delicious side of the food movement while hearing how New Yorkers are working to highlight local and sustainable food production, both here in New York and across the globe. We’ll draw on the expertise of including Ellen Gustafson, co-founder and director of FEED Projects and the 30 Project, who will provide insights about how our eating in New York can affect food systems internationally.

A certified sommelier will guide us through a tasting of 4 regional wines paired with creations from the chefs of Great Performances Catering, using seasonal ingredients from Katchkie Farm in Columbia County, NY. Great Performances’ CEO, Liz Neumark, will give us the story behind the food.

Event Name: Eating Locally Thinking Globally
Date: Sunday Sept 19 1-3pm
Location: Mae Mae Cafe, 68 Vandam Street, between Varick and Hudson Streets, New York, NY
The event is open to the general public.
