Food Day 2012

…is October 24. Food should have it's own day and so it does. This is definitely an item for Everybody Eats. iCreate too as well as community gardens and farmers markets. Check out the many partner organizations, no government or industry funding accepted, and start panning a Food Day event. Get the word out.

Food Day is a celebration of real food and a campaign to help solve food-related problems in our homes, on our farms, in our schools and in our communities. We want food to be healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it.

Salt Meats Cheese in Sydney

This one is just because it appealed to me, reminding me of delis, charcuteries and the shop all over Munich and everywhere in Germany that sell Aufschnitt (cold cuts), cheese and beverages... trying to remember the German name, not Metzgerei, which is for the butcher's, is driving me nuts and no doubt will until I remember. I thought what a delightful place and isn't food about place as well as memories? My father, raised on a dairy farm outside Canton in northern New York State was a lifetime cheese lover. Food is still as much about memory and associations as it is about nutrition. A different kind of nourishment.
