… to everyone who volunteered their time and energy at 2011 Foodcamp 253. You’re amazing!
REFLECTION ON THE EVENT
People came together to share their needs, resources, and knowledge with one another in an effort to promote good things for our community. I think it’s wonderful that people are actively thinking about what they are eating and drinking and making an effort to learn how to be better food and beverage consumers. I also think it’s amazing to hear how these same people are trying to be better neighbors to those in their community who have great needs. Foodcamp was a great event to learn how to do both of these things better – because of the presenters and the attendees who asked such engaging questions.
The day included a variety of topics about different food philosophies, struggles local business have with delivering high quality products, tips for storing my food better, tips for taking better photographs, what it’s like to start a new food/beverage business, how to provide a better cocktail to my guests, how to think about food marketing, challenges local groups have with meeting the needs of hungry kids and adults, ways I can keep fats, oil, and grease out of my drain… and more. What a thought-provoking day it was, and I’m excited to keep learning what I can from this community. I really hope you feel the same way.

Thank you for your support of Foodcamp 253. I’m already excited about the next one!
It’s never too early to think about what you want to talk about!
