Look For The Little Non-GMO Label

I probably wouldn’t have noticed if there hadn’t been two of them, but there I was fixing dinner, two cans of food (Tuttorosso tomatoes and Pearls black olives) before me on the counter.  Both sported a little green label that I couldn’t read without my glasses but on which were printed the following words: “Non-GMO Project Verfied.”  What’s this?  A GMO label?  I thought we weren’t allowed to have those.  But no, it’s apparently fine to label your food products as long as it’s not mandatory to do so.

Strolling of the Heifers Seeks Participants in Farm-to-Table Culinary Apprenticeship Program

Strolling of the Heifers will offer up to 16 people a chance to enroll in a paid apprenticeship program designed to help them start culinary industry careers.

The Stroll's Farm-to-Table Culinary Apprenticeship program is a 12-week program offering training that can lead to permanent food-preparation positions at restaurant and institutional kitchens.

The program is free to participants who meet income employment status qualifications, including veterans. It includes classroom time, as well as on-the-job experience at restaurant and institutional kitchens, for which participants will be paid. 

The aim of the program, says Orly Munzing, founder and executive director of Strolling of the Heifers, is to place all participants into permanent culinary employment at the conclusion of the program. "If the participant is successful at completing the course work, we're pretty sure we can successfully place that person," she said.

Food Justice: To What Extent Does It Exist In Our Community?

Who in our community has the means and access to grow, sell, and eat healthy food?  Is it a reasonable expectation that our food be fresh, nutritious, affordable, and grown locally, with care for the well-being of the land, workers and animals?

The Shareholder Forum of the Brattleboro Food Coop will hold a community dialogue on food justice on Sunday, March 20, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm in the Brattleboro Food Co-op Community Room, 7 Canal Street. A panel of local experts will address these questions from the different perspectives of farmers (Howard Prussack, High Meadow Farm, and Brian McNeice, Bonvue Farm), children (Vicky Senni, Let's Grow Kids!), seniors (Chris McAvoy, Brattleboro Senior Meals), low-income people (Rhianna Kendrick, Groundworks Collaborative), and the Brattleboro Food Co-op (Sabine Rhyne).  Members of the community are invited to participate in this dialogue with the panelists and fellow community members.
