Tickets are on sale for Let Us Eat Local, an annual tasting event in NYC on October 3 that benefits Just Food, a non-profit that works to make fresh, locally grown food accessible to all New Yorkers. Purchase your tickets by August 15 for a discount.
I ate so much delectable food at last year’s event that I nearly had to be rolled out the door. I was pregnant with Fergus and skipped the specialty cocktails, but the folks from Organic Valley sent me home with a carton of organic milk.
Can’t attend? Host a local-themed dinner party at home. Invite your guests to bring a dish that features at least one locally raised ingredient, and spread the word about Just Food’s mission.
