Making Every Meal Count at Fairfield Expo

Feb 18, 2011 03:45PM

Building on the success of last year’s Food for Thought Expo, the Fuel for Learning Partnership will host the expo on Saturday, March 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Fairfield Warde High School with the theme, “Make Every Meal Count.” Michelle McCabe, Chairperson of the Fuel for Learning Partnership (FFLP), a PTA Council Standing Committee, explains that “Make Every Meal Count” underlines the importance of healthy eating: “Every meal counts for each of us – as a source of energy for a productive day at school or work, or contributing to good health. But it’s also about our environment and a way to support local farms, or a way to connect with our family during meals.”

 The Food for Thought Expo will showcase how to find and prepare fresh, local foods. Over 30 local farmers, bakers, health professionals, restaurants, and businesses featuring local products are expected at the 2011 event, with workshops on organic gardening, cooking demonstrations, lectures on nutrition and school lunch, and children's activities. The event is free.
