***SLOW FOOD URBAN SAN DIEGO’S FIRST EVER FOOD SWAP***


Be a part of Slow Food Urban San Diego’s First Community Food Swap!

 

 

Join us on Sunday June 12th at 12 PM @  The Linkery in North Park.  

Share your homemade and homegrown foodstuffs with other swappers. 

 

Bring your homemade jams, pickles, breads, crackers, world famous brownies, homegrown fruits, herbs or veggies to swap. Food swaps are gaining popularity across the country, as people reclaim a DIY lifestyle and want to share their incredible creations with their community. 

 

Come celebrate the amazing skills and creativity of your fellow San Diegans and take home some delicious treats in exchange for your own. Swapping takes place silent auction style, but there will be plenty of time to mingle with the other swappers and sample their wares.

 

 

Please see the attached participation agreement for details on what to bring and how the swap works.

FOOD MEETS ART WITH AGRI*PLANET

On Thursday, June 9, Alchemy restaurant in South Park will host an artist’s reception for local chef and artist Melissa Mayer, whose AGRI*PLANET show was created in collaboration with  Grass Fed Beef Week.

The 411:

Opening Reception: “AGRI*PLANET” @ Alchemy June 9th from 6pm-10pm

AGRI*PLANET is a suggestive, provocative and often irony-laden series of work within multiple mediums that is a social commentary on the state of our food culture and the food industry.  The artist’s reception will include temporary installations and the remaining works within the show will be on view @ Alchemy into early July, 2011.

10% of the proceeds from the sales of the artwork in this collection will benefit Slow Food Urban San Diego, a 100% grassroots organization supporting and promoting food that is good, clean and fair.
