Happenings at "The Merck"
Local Food Circle - Monthly Meetings
Food Circle Gathering February 17th 6:30 p.m. All over the country, and here in our state, exciting projects are taking place helping people to maintain control of our food supply. Here's our part The Food Circle is a supportive group of food producers and consumers interested in supporting local foods. Each month our group meets at the McKittrick Farmers Mercantile on a Wednesday evening for a potluck supper and an educational presentation. Our goal is to create a year round marketplace of local foods here in our area. Local food producers shouldn’t have to drive their products to the larger urban areas for better prices and a consistent market. We are creating a viable market for them here by regular networking over food. We all eat every day. We would like to know, personally, where our food is coming from. Everyone is welcome to this free event. Our next gathering is Wednesday February 17th at 6:30 p.m. Our presentation will be a recap of the recent HARES living skills symposium and an introduction to the Missouri Organic Association.
