Subject: Eat In, Act Out Update
Thank you so much for your interest in participating in Eat In, Act Out
week. We now have 41 organizations planning events in 22 states, and 3
countries, and I keep hearing about more groups who are planning events
around the world!
Here are some new events I've heard about:
"The University of New Hampshire Organic Garden Club will be holding a
local food drive during the Eat In, Act Out week, at the end of which we
will hold a picnic/dinner for members of the local food pantry, possibly
opening it up to the larger community (details have yet to be worked
out!). Leftover food from the drive will be given to the food pantry.
I'll keep you posted as we develop our ideas further; ideally we'd like
to have one small event each day of the week in addition to the food
UNH Organic Garden Club, Durham, NH
"A bike tour of local community gardens, date TBA.
An Eat Local picnic in the park: We would meet in the morning to shop at
the ENY Farms! Farmers' market and gather in the afternoon at a local
park to have a potluck picnic. Saturday, August 6th."
