It doesn’t take much to get me on the dance floor. I love a good party, and happily December is chock full of ’em. I hear Melissa Clark throws a latke soirée every year– I’m dying to be invited, but our paths have yet to cross. In the meantime, I’m very, very much looking forward to the Annual Small Planet Fund Party on December 10.
“The Small Planet Fund was founded by Frances Moore Lappé and Anna Lappé to support courageous movements bringing to life citizen-led solutions to hunger, poverty, and environmental devastation. This year, the Fund is highlighting the work of local hero, Just Food, committed to improving access to fresh, healthy food in NYC and to support the local farms and urban gardens that grow it.”
Join these amazing women and their host committee (LG friends Cathy Erway of Not Eating out in NY, Karry Trueman and Matt Rosenberg of Eating Liberally, Destin Joy Lane from The Eat Well Guide, and Edible Brooklyn/Manhattan/East End’s own Brian Halweil, to name a few) to share sustainably-minded talk and ideas. The evening will honor Just Food, the food justice non-profit that continues to up the number of CSAs in the city each year, pushes for legalized bee keeping, city chicken farming, and increased access to fresh, local food in New York City. Their hard work and momentum give us all great reason to celebrate!
