Broad and Ritner has been busy planning our community event at the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center. Today, we spoke to our contact at the Center and got some exciting news: if we change our event to after lunch we could have around 90 people attend!!! It seems that the Older Adult Center is a lunch destination for the elderly. So, if we change our event to the afternoon, then we could educate and reach out a larger group of people then our original dinner plan. Instead of serving a full meal, we are going to make healthy snacks from produce, cheese, and meats from the market. We are very excited about this recent development because we believe that this is a great way to educate even more people about farmers markets, local food economies, and healthy lifestyles. We still want to show a film and have an interactive game (food bingo, anyone??). The Older Adult Center has an auditorium that is perfect for our event. An updated menu will be coming soon…
