Food Safety Action Alert!

October 14, 2013 in Take Action, Uncategorized

 Locally Grown Tomatoes

What is the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)?

 

The answer right now, is not good for our local food community.

 

The US Food and Drug Administration has proposed new rules this year that will have a huge impact on how fresh fruits and vegetables are grown and processed in the US. This is a big deal for farmers and eaters! Everyone has a role in ensuring safe food from field to fork – but FDA’s new proposed rules as written will unfairly burden family farmers, target sustainable and organic farming, and reduce the availability of fresh, local food in our communities. Right now, we have a chance to tell FDA that this is unacceptable – and we need your help to do it.

To learn more about these pending changes and how you can stand with farmers to protect your local food system follow the link below:

Stand up today for food and farms!

Each ticket brings you a full dinner made with locally sourced ingredients; appetizers from Piatto, Gaia Cafe and Mountainside Supper Club; drinks (including beer, wine and fruit spritzers if you’re 21+); live bluegrass and jazz; the chance to meet artists working in a wide range of mediums as they create one-of-a-kind pieces throughout the farm fields; and the opportunity to purchase pieces by regional artists. Join over 200 of your fellow community members, farmers, students, entrepreneurs and artists to soak up local food, music, art and drinks!
