Want to sample some of Indiana’s finest ingredients and share a meal with fellow Hoosiers who appreciate local food as much as you do? Local food lovers can convene monthly over a feast of local ingredient-inspired dishes at the Indy Food, Farm and Family Coalition’s potlucks. This month’s local food potluck will be held at New Day Meadery (1102 Prospect St., Indianapolis), Feb. 24 from 6 – 8 p.m.
The potlucks hope to encourage the consumption of local food by the general public and create a space where people can share and educate each other about local food sourcing and seasonal cooking. Attendees can expect to meet fellow “locavores” and converse over a feast of Indiana’s finest food.
The rules of the game are simple. Bring a covered dish created with locally-grown or produced ingredients, eating utensils, and the recipe of your dish (the Coalition shares potluck recipes on its website). RSVP for the event on Indy Food, Farm and Family Coalition’s Facebook event page.
The Indianapolis Food, Farm and Family Coalition aims to make Indianapolis a more food secure city through education, awareness, public programs, and connecting consumers to farmers. Coalition members work together to bridge the gap between producers and consumers.
