Eat Local Now! This year it’s again at the Herban Feast SODO and it’s October 24, 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm with Silent Auction items available earlier and throughout dinner. Musical entertainment this year will be Bahia Rowan, contemporary folk singer and songwriter from Seattle.
Every year, for the past six years, hundreds of local businesses, residents, and farmers, ranchers, fisherman and chefs throughout the region come together over a great meal to celebrate and promote the importance of the local food system in Cascadia. This innovative community tradition—the Eat Local Now! Dinner—was started by BALLE Seattle (predecessor organization to the Seattle Good Business Network) in 2004, and Sustainable West Seattle, along with CoolMom and many others, have remained integral partners ever since.
It’s The Ultimate Collaboration – short history [and click here to see this year’s poster]
Eat Local Now! is an annual collaboration between several community organizations that care about increasing awareness and options for “good food close to home.” Participating organizations have included Sustainable West Seattle, Sustainable Ballard, Sustainable Cascadia, CoolMom, Chef’s Collaborative, EarthCorps, and Seattle Good Business Network (formerly as BALLE Seattle).
While the annual event itself is the reason for coming together, the process of pulling it off is where the mission of the project comes to life. It is a true collaboration among participating community groups: we each attend planning meetings, make consensus decisions, and share fund-raising proceeds equally.
Tickets are on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets. The event is not only kid-friendly, there are special locations and activities for the younger set throughout the entire evening.
