Beginning in January 2019, Massaro Community Farm and the Woodbridge Town Library will be cohosting three events over the first three months of the year focused on the local food movement. These events are intended to be a fun way to bring residents together to discuss a variety of food-related topics during the winter months. All events are free and open to the public and will take place from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the library’s meeting room at 10 Newton Road in Woodbridge.
The first event on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 will be a food tasting called “Fresh Ingredients, A Tasting of January.” Join us for a discussion with three local chefs who will use local ingredients to make fresh food utilizing produce currently in season. Six different items will be prepared for tasting. You can register at www.woodbridgetownlibrary.org or call the library at 203-389-3433.
The series will continue on Wednesday, February 13 with a pre-Valentine’s potluck and will wrap up on Wednesday, March 13 with a panel discussion on the themes of supporting locally grown food and sustainable food systems. For the February potluck, participants are encouraged to bring a dish or dessert to share along with its recipe and a serving utensil.
