ASTORIA — Each winter, North Coast Food Web sponsors two events in support of local food producers and to improve access to healthy, farm-direct food for shoppers.
The first is Farmer-Chef Connect, taking place 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, at Food Web headquarters, 577 18th St.
With more and more area restaurants working to feature locally produced products on their menus, the Food Web provides an opportunity for both groups to come together to find out what chefs would like to buy locally and introduce them to what is available here at home.
Meet Your Farmer — 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, March 3, at Food Web headquarters — is a chance for community members to see what’s available from local farmers.
This is the time of year when farms that offer Community Supported Agriculture programs take registrations. When harvest season begins, CSA members receive a weekly box of fresh produce to inspire the next seven days of meals. Visit with the folks who grow your food, enjoy a light snack and see what’s in store for spring.
