I for one am very excited about the Eat Real Fest, coming to a place near me (yeah!!) in August. The 28-30th to be exact.
According to the site, there will be a canning exchange, a butchery contest andf some foraging going down. Homebrewers, cupcakes and street food will be playing starring roles.
Oakland really needs this type of event. It will help showcase all the elements that make eating fresh food pleasurable. As I have been learning more about food justice and also forbidden foods, my view of food is taking new turns.
Eat Real and its compatriets are challenging food sterotypes, introducing a whole new crop of people to the fresh, the new, real food. This is an amazing opportunity for Oakland to join together & learn something beneficial for the entire community!
