‘I Love Local Food’ Week celebrates our bounty

Gainesville’s 4th annual “I Love Local Food” Week 2018 will be held Sunday, Feb. 11, through Saturday, Feb. 17, and will kick off with a movie night at Forage Hall at Working Food, 219 NW 10th Ave. in Gainesville. Throughout the week there will be free workshops and other opportunities for individuals to learn about fresh, healthy, and local food our region has to offer, announced Working Food.  

Thanks to partnerships with local farms, businesses, and community organizations, “I Love Local Food” week will feature ways people of all ages, backgrounds and experiences can connect to the local food movement and will show the variety of opportunities people in Gainesville and surrounding areas have to buy and eat locally.  I Love Local Food Week will help Gainesville residents prepare for the “Eat Local Challenge” in May.

“Participants will have the chance to learn more about making fresh, healthy food a part of their diet and overall lifestyle,” says Anna Prizzia, President of Working Food. “This is a great opportunity for people to get involved and learn how important our local food system is to our economic well-being and the health of our community.”

Any organization or business that wishes to be a part of “I Love Local Food” Week and have their event featured can email Working Food for more information at anna@workingfood.org.
