Great Harvest Bread Co.

This will be set-up like a farmers market, but with samples galore!  Participating businesses will also have their products for sale so you can try it, and buy it if you wish.   Come support the types of local businesses that will stock the shelves of the Manchester Food Co-op!
Oh, and we’ll also enjoy a series of short “Nourish” films, followed by discussion about how each topic affects our local community.
Food Day’s national goals for healthy, affordable, sustainable and fair food directly mirror the mission of the Manchester Food Co-op. Mayor Gatsas has proclaimed it an official holiday in Manchester!  
All guests will be eligible to win the following drawings:
Royal Palace Ballroom Academy $100 gift certificate
Moonlight Meadery Romance Package (includes tasting, keepsake glasses and money back on purchase)

“Nourish” is an educational initiative designed to open a meaningful conversation about food and sustainability, particularly in schools and communities. With beautiful visuals and inspiring stories, the film traces our relationship to food from a global perspective to personal action steps. Nourish illustrates how food connects to such issues as biodiversity, climate change, public health, and social justice.
