Prepping and Cooking for the 20th Annual “Thanksgiving Feast for the Homeless”

Prepping and Cooking for the 20th Annual “Thanksgiving Feast for the Homeless”

Once again, we are preparing for our huge community event, to bring a Thanksgiving Feast to the Homeless! Each year, we partner with the River Fund NY, a 501-c3 organization, and create a Thanksgiving Feast in Rufus King Park in Jamaica, Queens, for those in need. No one can do it alone, so we depend on the magic that happens when community comes together! If you would like to participate in this years event, please sign up for a time slot.

Also, we need help in gathering coats, boots, hats and other winter items, including blankets, sleeping bags and pillows. This year, we are also collecting books, so it’s a good time to go through those bookshelves!

Celebrate Mother Earth

Slow Food International Terra Madre Day

International Terra Madre Day is December 10th, but Slow Food North Shore will be celebrating it on December 9th at our local cinema.  During our celebration we will share with you a short video about Terra Madre in Italy and the community that makes it so special, while enjoying some local foods prepared by Slow Food members.

Terra Madre Day is an opportunity to celebrate “Mother Earth” and highlight local foods that are at risk of disappearing.  One of Slow Food’s many programs is their Ark of Taste which identifies those foods along with the cultures and techniques related to their production and use, in an attempt to catalogue and preserve them.  We invite you to nominate an endangered product in your area into the Ark of Taste.

Start: December 9, 2014 7:30 PM
End: December 9, 2014 9:30 PM
Venue: Cinema Arts Centre

Food on Film: Cowspiracy

Food on Film: Cowspiracy

“COWSPIRACY: The Sustainability Secret” is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world’s leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as “Blackfish” and as inspiring as “An Inconvenient Truth,” this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet.

Join Slow Food North Shore in learning more about our food industry.  Stay after the film for Question and Answer as well as delicious organic snacks.
