Eat Healthy! With Ballot Box Events
You voted for him, and Collinwood chef Kevin Scheuring served up tasty food classes. He introduced the neighborhood to some new and exciting flavors through his Ballot Box funded project. Kevin and his team from the Coit Road Farmer's Market brought their expertise of local food and flavors to the residents of Collinwood in cooking events at Collinwood Recreation Center, Wildwood Park, and the Market. They roasted, grilled, and pickled veggies for all to enjoy. With live music and art for the kids, it was truly a festive family event. Hopefully we'll see more of the Coit Road Farmers Market in the community.
It's not too late to get involved the local food projects. Whether grown in your garden or caught from the pier, you have a recipe that everyone wants to know how to prepare. Now is your chance. Lori Kella is creating the Grow.Cook.Eat.Collinwood Cookbook, and needs your help. Share with her your favorite recipes featuring local food. The cookbook will be released during November's Walk All Over Waterloo and available for purchase at cost.
But wait! There's more! Operation: Vegetables! The Giant Board Game of Yummy Health has a scheduled grand unveiling on Saturday, October 8th from noon to 3 p.m. at Memorial-Nottingham Library. Not only can you experience this new game, you can try fresh ice-pops, Fresh Bites, and live music. This is a project of Linda Zolten Wood who worked with neighborhood youth to help create the game.
