Celebrate Food Day in South Jersey on October 24

Eat Real!

That’s the message that’s being sent out in events around the country this October 24. That day is Food Day, a day of celebrating “healthy, affordable and sustainable food” through locally-organized events. This includes events taking place right here in South Jersey. See what’s taking place:

* The biggest of the local celebrations is Slow Food South Jersey Shore’s all-day affair at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County in Cape May Court House. The festivities run from 11:30AM to 5:30PM and include classes on organic farming, beekeeping and canning, a lunch, and a presentation from RAH (Rutgers Against Hunger). The lunch is $5, and the canning class is also $5, and yopu do need to reserve in advance. Please check out Slow Food South Jersey Shore’s website for all of the details.

* Sustainable Cherry Hill is holding a panel discussion at the Croft Farm Arts Center from 7PM to 9PM. The panel will be talking about current food policies on a local and national level and what positive changes can be made in both.

* At ShopRite in Glassboro, dietician Cassandra Golden will be providing food, recipes and other information on nutrition, and having fun things for the kids to do from 12PM to 3PM.
