The Fuel for Learning Partnership, a PTA Council Standing Committee, invites Fairfield and surrounding towns to mark their calendars for the 3rd annual Food for Thought Expo. The Expo will be at the Fairfield Warde High School in Fairfield, on Saturday, March 31 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

  The Expo is free and open to the public and will feature cooking demonstrations and workshops, bringing together a wide variety of vendors who are ready to help area residents make the best possible choices in local produce, meats, groceries, and ready-made foods. In addition, the Expo will feature the Fuel for Learning Partnership’s (FFLP) efforts to encourage area residents to consume more vegetables. Recently, the FFLP created a website, VeggiePledge.org, where people can find information about the pledge and sign up. With the veggie pledge effort, FFLP hopes to inspire residents to develop an interest in providing their family healthy choices by featuring recipes and links to local resources.

  “We're looking forward to welcoming back exhibitors from last year, as well as introducing visitors to new businesses.” said Michelle McCabe, Chairperson of the Fuel for Learning Partnership. “We will be incorporating our Veggie Pledge initiative in many of the demonstrations and workshops, to make eating vegetables a delicious, daily habit.”

 

The Food for Thought Expo is supported by PTA council and a generous A.C.T. grant from the Fairfield Prevention Council.
