10 a.m. Saturday, January 21: “Food for Thought Book Club”
The Kingsolver/Hopp family decides to do a one-year experiment: eat only food raised in their own region or grown themselves. They give up faraway goods (each person is allowed only one exception!). In Minnesota, can we eat local year-round? What would we have to give up? What faraway food item would be your one exception (bananas? olive oil? coffee?) Let’s talk. We meet once-a-month.
For January 21: Chapter One: Called Home. Chapter Two: Waiting for Asparagus: Late March.
The St. Cloud Public Library has 6 or 7 copies of the book.
Come even if you haven’t read the chapters! You don’t have to read the book to enjoy conversation and make friends.
6 pm, Monday, January 23: Meet & Greet
Now that you’re a member/owner of Minnesota Street Market, we’d like to meet you!
