The challenge week hosted a delicious potluck on Thursday night: shepherd’s pie, bison tongue, chips/cheese/salsa, pesto pasta, quiche, apple crisps, roasted potatoes, root vegetable stew, mint tea, etc., etc. I know there was more…the table was full. Really good food, and about 35 good eaters. The MPIRG chapter from Carleton, a bevy of local-food get-it-done activists brought us up to date on their project to get a Rice County local food policy in place.
One of their ideas was to develop a Local Food policy council, something other municipalities have constituted. I would argue the first meeting of this “future council” has just met…….
And consumed quality food. I would also suggest more potlucks!
