Hilltown organizations should have "Eat Local Dinners"

Below is a posting I made on my Helderberg Hilltowns Facebook site along with a response I got this morning that I want to share with you:

Harold Hal Miller

Harold Hal Miller Those of you who live in the Hilltowns; please encourage your local organizations to buy local, especially when planning fundraising meals. We need to put our money where our mouths are, and buy local produce to feed our mouths and those that come to our fundraisers. Make your organizations proud to advertise that the meals they serve are from local farmers.

Our church, Emmanuel Baptist in downtown Albany, has begun

a tradition of having "100-mile potlucks" once or twice a

year; people are encouraged to bring dishes made with food

from within a 100-mile radius. This has helped to raise

consciousness about the abundance, variety and quality of

locally-produced food. I know of some other churches in the

area that are doing the same thing.

Follow up: For Hilltown organizations wouldn't it be a great idea to have "Hilltown potlucks" with all dishes made from food from the hilltowns.
