Mark Your Calendars: World Food Day Community Dinner, October 18

Hungry for change? To celebrate World Food Day, the New Mexico Oxfam Action Corps is partnering with New Mexico Interfaith Power and Light to host the 3rd annual FREE Community Dinner at First Congregational Church,  2801 Lomas Blvd NE ,(see map) Saturday, October 18, 6:00-8:00 p.m.  Join Event on Facebook

The meal will be entirely local, made by a community chef from food purchased or donated at the Downtown Growers Market.  We invite you to gather in solidarity with people who grow the world’s food and 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.

This year, the event will focus on women farmers, considering how important they are, and that women are responsible for the majority of food production in many developing countries. The featured presenter is Evelyn Losack, co-founder of the Corrales Cultural Arts Council, the Corrales Harvest Festival, and the Corrales Growers' Market, who will speak about access to land and growing food in New Mexico. 

Join New Mexico Oxfam Action Corps and Interfaith Power and Light 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.  Stay tuned for more details.
