MADISON CO., N.Y. — Madison County Cooperative Extension presents Food for Thought, a 4-part series where we bring together insightful food sourcing enthusiasts, farmers and consumers to help facilitate conversations and brainstorm efficient ways to make farm-to-table accessible.
As the demand for locally produced food increases, the need for connecting with local farmers has grown even more important. How do we meet that need? How do we make local foods available across our county to the broadest socioeconomical range? The Food for Thought series will attempt to address questions such as these.
In part 1 of our series, you are invited to a locally sourced FREE meal and to engage in lively conversations about food and farming. Together we will talk about where our food comes from and how we can work towards more healthy local meals on the tables of Madison County consumers, creating more revenue for our farmers and good eats for our residents. It’s a win-win! The task is great, but with a few creative minds we can make anything happen. As winter will soon be upon us, let’s start these conversations with full bellies and creative minds.
This unique dining experience will take place at CCE Morrisville 100 Eaton Street Morrisville on October 12, 2021 at 6 p.m. The award-winning chef Alyson Hart will cook up a delicious 5-course meal with only locally sourced foods. The dinner will be moderated by Monica Cody, President of the CCE Board of Directors, and Johanna Bossard, Agriculture Education Teacher at Hamilton Central School. The dinner will take place in the Ag Center. Parking is on the left side of the building.
Each participant will leave with a basket of locally sourced food to share with their family and friends. We will challenge you to cook something with these food items and post it on our Facebook page CCEMadison. Space is limited, register now by going to: https://reg.cce.cornell.edu/foodforthought_225. All necessary COVID precautions will be followed.
