Event Details

REAP Business Association is proud to host, with the support of Community Natural Foods, First
Calgary Financial
, and Calgary Herald, a wonderful event in celebration of local sustainable food and farmers!

The third annual Food for Thought event is a harvest celebration that brings together all of the participants in a sustainable local food system: consumers, producers, retailers and chefs. It's designed to raise awareness for sustainably produced food and encourage Calgarians to make more informed daily choices for greater enjoyment and improved health.

Through the use of a multimedia display and 20 sampling stations, we’ll be showcasing producers and businesses that promote healthy, sustainable food and giving Calgarians an opportunity to discover and savour their products. Imagine meeting the farmer that grew the local, organic tomato alongside the independent chef that prepared the gazpacho you are enjoying. Taste the difference and learn more about these businesses' commitment to sustainability.

The event will also include presentations by sustainable food authors - dee Hobsbawn-Smith, author of Foodshed, and Jennifer Cockrall King, author of Food and the City - book signings and live music. Michelle Giangualano from Bundles of Energy will present the new Whole Foods Lifestyle System. Come get inspired by Calgary's bounty and access resources that will keep you connected to our local food system all year long.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. They include bite-sized samples from the 20 sampling stations. Local beer, local organic wine and organic non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase. No minors.

Part of National Organic Week (September 22-29, 2012).

Organizer

REAP Business Association

REAP stands for Respect for the Earth and All People. We're a not-for-profit association for locally owned businesses that care about the community and the environment.

Our "Be Local" campaign helps Calgarians find local businesses that reflect their values. By choosing these businesses they contribute to the development of renewable energy in Alberta, reduce waste through recycling and composting programs, ensure employees are paid a Living Wage, create Community Orchards in areas where people can't afford fresh fruit, and keep more money recirculating in our local economy.

REAP businesses are demonstrating that business can make a profit while contributing to healthy and prosperous communities.
