July Monthly Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who made the July meeting this past week. Big developments follow:

- We're on track for our fund raising event at Terra Restaurant on Thursday, August 13. Food from Anson Mills, Five Leaves Farm and Little Creek Plantation will be a part of the tasting. The event will run from 6:00pm - 9:00pm.

- We have a proposed location for our Time for Lunch Eat-In! We're aiming to hold it at Little Creek Plantation so over the coming days and weeks we'll iron out whether or not this will work, logistically.

- Other discussions centered around accepting SNAP payments at farmers markets locally, the Slow Food Columbia table at the All-Local Farmers Market and which local district could be a part of the Eat-In.
