On 10.10.10, RoadsideOrganics.org and Green the Block invite you to join us for District Flavors: A Local Food Block Party at Bread for the City at 1525 7th Street NW in Washington, DC.
While organic fervor has struck in DC, it has not yet reverberated across the city. We want to bring the new food movement to those residents living in the District’s notorious food ‘deserts’, showing how bringing back age-old Sunday supper can anchor families in new healthy lifestyles.
We believe in the power of local food to uplift our communities, improve our health, and revitalize our local economy.
The event is part of 350.org's Global Work Party that is putting people to work around the world to make a positive impact on our climate and environment. The event will be free and feature seasonal food cooked by several of DC's best chefs and music from local hip hop artists.
Every meal makes a difference. Let's join together and chart a new beginning.
The money pledged here on Kickstarter will be used to fund the event, the logistical costs of industrial grills and PA systems and biodegradable utensils. We need $1500 to fund the event. Any extra money we raise through Kickstarter will be donated to the green roof project at Bread for the City, DC's premiere food bank. This urban garden will provide fresh food to disadvantaged city residents. Please join the movement to rid food deserts from our cities.
