"In Organic We Trust" film screening on Weds. 6/3/15 6-9p in Sunnyvale

You are invited to join us for a free screening of the film "In Organic We Trust" at the Sunnyvale Public Library, 665 West Olive, Sunnyvale, CA, on Wednesday evening 6/3/15 from 6-9p.
Synopsis - We can no longer stomach our food system. It's killing more and more Americans and costing billions in health care. But is organic really better for us or just a marketing scam?
When corporations went into the business and "organic" became a brand, everything changed. The philosophy and the label grew apart. Can gummy bears or bananas flown halfway across the world truly be organic?
This film looks beyond organic for practical solutions for me and you. Local farmer's markets, school gardens, and urban farms are revolutionizing the way we eat.
Brought to you by Charles Street Gardens, Full Circle Farm Sunnyvale and Transition Silicon Valley.

May Fourth Friday, Shop Your Kitchen Potluck, 5/22/15 7-9p in Palo Alto

May 22, 2015 - Fourth Friday
Shop your kitchen potluck!

We're continuing our look at food waste with a fun "anti-food waste" evening.

Bring a potluck dish to share - with this extra twist:

Try to use as much as you can from your own kitchen. Or, ask your favorite vendors at your grocer's, farmer's market, or bakery for good food that might not be quite "perfect" - like day-old bread or produce with small blemishes.
Got a can of garbonzo beans? Make hummus!
Got a cabbage in the fridge? Make cole slaw!
Got some rice in your cupboard and some veggies in your fridge? Mix it up and get creative!
This is a "do your best" event. If you need to go out and buy something or get some
new ingredients, that's OK too. Don't let that stop you from coming!

We'll brainstorm about ideas to reduce waste, including anything that you've been doing over the past month.

PLUS we'll show some short videos to get you inspired to take more action.
