They will announce Food Literacy Hero Award winners to community members who have worked to improve food literacy education in their community, followed by a food demonstration featuring the winner of the “Veggie of the Year” contest.
At the fair, attendees will have fun learning about food from the ground up and how to make more informed food choices that are good for people and the planet. The event will feature live music, live cooking demonstrations featuring local chefs, crafts and kids games, local chefs, free food samples, live farm animals , and a Veggie of the Year Contest!
