"The Great Harvest", a party for food for all

"The Great Harvest", a celebration of a new collaborative community food blog called The DC Food For All, is being held on October 24 at Big Bear Cafe.   The new blog will be about all things related to DC's food infrastructure and food culture, looking towards a healthier future for all of the city's residents.   There is a suggested $15 donation that will go to support the Web site, an interactive map of food resources in DC.   (But we mean the "suggested" part - all are welcome, regardless of ability to donate!)   Details about "The Great Harvest" are online at Beyond Bread.

So what does all of this have to do with Ward 1 and our residents?   To start, Ward 1 nonprofits (such as Martha's Table) are included in the DC Food Finder map.   Also consider that 6,991 individuals received food stamps in 2008.   The DC Food Finder is a terrific tool that links residents to the services they need.   So party for a great cause!
