Date: Sunday, October 12, 2014
Time: 4:30 – 7:30pm

Food Day is an annual national event that inspires Americans to change their diets and our food policies. It ties in perfectly with Slow Food’s mission to educate people about the benefits of good, clean, and fair food for all.

Slow Food East End will celebrate Food Day with a SuperFood Drive Snail Supper, a community potluck dinner that offers you an opportunity to share delicious, nutritious food with others in our community – both at the potluck dinner and through your donation to a food pantry.

Our Food Day celebration will be educational, including a fermentation demonstration by health coach Nadia Ernestus. This event is FREE and open to the public. All you need to do is bring a SuperFood dish for the potluck supper and a SuperFood donation for food pantries on the East End!

What to Bring:

1. For the potluck supper, please bring a “SuperFood” dish that serves 6-8 people. If possible, it should be made from local, seasonal ingredients and homemade. What exactly are “superfoods”? The term “superfoods” refers to foods rich in especially healthful nutrients such as antioxidants, healthy fats, fiber and phytochemicals. Examples of superfoods include dried fruit, oatmeal, almonds, peanut butter, canned tomatoes, dry or canned beans, whole grains, barley and lentils. Just Google “superfoods” and you’ll get a multitude of “top 10″ lists of delicious foods that are packed with nutrients.

2. For your donation to the Food Pantry, please bring a non-perishable food that fits into the “SuperFood”category. See below for suggestions. This event is BYOB, so bring whatever beverage you prefer. If you want, make your drink a SuperFood, too! Please also bring a serving utensil for your dish.

Can’t come but want to make a donation? Please drop pff your SuperFood donation at Dodds & Eder over the Columbus Day weekend. Hours are Saturday, Sunday and Monday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm. Dodds & Eder is located at 11 Bridge Street in Sag Harbor.

What is Food Day?

Food Day is an event to inspire Americans to improve their own diets and work toward solving food-related problems at the local, state, and national level. Food Day was started by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest and other food leaders in 2011. Last year over 5,000 events took place throughout the United States.

Food Day inspires Americans to change their diets and our food policies. This year, Food Day will have a special focus on food access and justice for food and farm workers.

This annual event involves some of the country’s most prominent food activists, united by a vision of food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, farm animals, and the people who grow, harvest, and serve it.

With Food Day, we can celebrate our food system when it works and fix it when it’s broken. You can read more about Food Day by clicking here.

Our thanks to Dodds & Eder for sharing their beautiful showroom with Slow Food for this event. There’s room for all, so make your reservation today!
