Celebrate Food Day October 24!

Fresh vegetables fallingIn recognition of Food Day, we have a special display featuring books and other materials related to local farms, kitchen gardens, food production, and healthy foods in our lobby area. We also have a special preschool story time on Friday, October 24 from 10:30 – 11:15 a.m. called “From Farm to Table,” which will feature stories, songs, and crafts with the theme of growing and eating healthy fruits and vegetables. Thanks to the Cape Farm Alliance for partnering with us on our Food Day festivities! You can sign up to receive the Cape Farm Alliance’s “What’s Fresh,” newsletter here!
