Reminder: Free Community Dinner a Week from Tomorrow
Hungry for change? To celebrate World Food Day, the New Mexico Oxfam Action Corps is hosting it's 2nd annual FREE Community Dinner at St. Thomas of Canterbury Episcopal Church, 425 University Boulevard NE, (across from the UNM campus), on Saturday, October 19, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
The meal will be entirely local, made by a community chef from the generous donations of farmers present at the Downtown Growers Market. This year's theme is "We stand on common ground." Hear a local farmer's take on access to land and growing food in New Mexico and gather in solidarity with people who grow the world’s food. Add to our discussion about where your food comes from, who cultivates it, and learn how you can take personal actions that will help protect farmers and farmland worldwide.
Join local advocates for for a night of fun, great food, and excellent discussion on how we can decrease hunger and poverty not only in New Mexico, but all over the world.
