Kathleen, Vicki, Lorene, Kim – Food Revolution Day 2012

Dishing in the Kitchen has teamed up with the Golden Ears FEAST, Haney Farmers Market, and Big Feast Bistro and Catering in Maple Ridge B.C. to bring Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day to our local town. If you love real food and want to help celebrate, check out the Food Revolution Day site here.

Local? Drop by our booth at the Haney Farmers Market on May 18-2013 and meet the Kitchenettes or reserve a Farm to Fork Dinner at the Big Feast Bistro on May 17 or 18th. A portion of proceeds go to Jamie Oliver’s Foundation and to our local environmental school.

Got Kids?

Youth ages 4 to 17 are invited to submit display projects that illustrate or demonstrate what real food means to them. Examples include posters or paintings depicting the food cycle, recipes or poems celebrating the use of whole food in cooking or eating, and dioramas or other visual projects that show an understanding of where food comes from and the importance of healthy, local, fresh food. Sound like foodie offspring fun?

Projects will be displayed at the Haney Farmers Market on Saturday, May 18 -2013. Market attendees will be invited to vote on their favorite projects and People’s Choice awards will be given out in three age categories. Prizes will include food-themed goody bags and gift certificates. Winning visual displays that can be mounted on the wall will be prominently displayed at the Big Feast Bistro for the remainder of the month of May.

Photos of all other winning projects will be featured right here on the Dishing in the Kitchen blog, and submitted to the team at Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day. Winners will have their photos taken with local dignitaries. To find out more about the

About Vicki

I’m a coach and consultant and in my spare time I like to cook and play house. I believe happy idleness is a purposeful pathway to a contented life. And I am happiest either in my pajamas or an apron – or both.
