“The act of putting into your mouth what the earth has grown is perhaps your most direct interaction with the earth.” – Frances Moore Lappe
Today kicks off 2011 Earth Dinner events all across the country and an exciting giveaway to help you host your own Earth Dinner. We’re proud to be a partner in the Earth Dinner movement and excited to share this year’s activities with you.
The Earth Dinner is a joyful, animated, and inspiring theme dinner party held at least once a year, connecting people to the earth, their food, and each other. It can be as planned or as spontaneous as you like. At its core Earth Dinner is a chance to highlight local, seasonal and organic cuisine—and most importantly, to have meaningful conversation about food, farming and our connection with the Earth.
Since 2004, thousands of individuals, organizations and restaurants have hosted Earth Dinners in the month of April as educational events, fundraisers or simply as a fun and meaningful family dinnertime activity.
This year, in addition to the events happening across the country, Earth Dinner is hosting an exciting giveaway on Facebook to help you host your own Earth Dinner! Prizes range from multiple $300 grocery gift certificates to a Grand Prize of a full CSA share purchased for the winner by our friends at Organic Valley. Just go to Earth Dinner on Facebook and view the note about rules for entry.
We hope you will join us in supporting the Earth Dinner message, not only for a chance to win a prize, but most importantly, to share in the storytelling that is the core value of the movement—growing awareness about our food, farming and how we connect to the earth and each other.
