Love those Heirloom Tomatoes…you know the ones I mean, those women and men of Humboldt County who are working together to improve the local food movement…formally known as Locally Delicious! They have produced two cookbooks and have raised money to pay farmers to produce food for Food for People (our food bank). If you would like to know how to contribute, listen here.
We ALWAYS look forward to having Food for People Executive Director Anne Holcomb on for an interview — she has such a wonderful caring presence and she, and her staff, work so hard to bring good high quality food to Food for People. She is so good at getting people to help out that I don’t think I know one person who hasn’t volunteered for Food for People at one time or the other. When she called to say she wanted to talk about a film they were hosting called “A Place at the Table” I was down for the cause!
The Food for People website is here in case you want to volunteer too!
Locally Delicious — you know them, the Heirloom Tomato Ladies, authors of the Locally Delicious Cookbook? Well they have created a fund that a has a very interesting purpose. The fund allocates money to Food for People to contract with local farmers to provide some of the crops that they would like to distribute. One of the cookbook authors, Ann Anderson, and one of the farmers, Johnny Gary from Organic Matters, came down to the station to talk about how it works and how people can contribute to the fund — to listen to the interview, click here.
