Food Day KC at the City Market — Saturday, October 19


On October 24 each year, Food Day Kansas City spreads the gospel by strewing Apple Share events throughout the city. Apples are at the core of health — an easy and inexpensive way to chomp on real food, plus they embody a symbol to raise awareness about food issues. On that day, apples will be doled out at various venues not only for their earthy sweetness and savory textures, but to get us thinking more about nutrition and simply eating real without the flavor of shame. A post will follow here which will rundown the Apple Share locations and times in Kansas City this year.

But, first on Saturday, October 19, from 9am to 1 pm Food Day Kansas City will also present a cooking demonstration by local chefs at the Farm to Table Kitchen located on the north side of the City Market. Featured at this culinary event will be chefs Michael Foust of the Farmhouse restaurant, Beth Bader of Les Dames d’Escoffier International KC and author of The Cleaner Plate Club, and Taryn Glidewell, Nutrition Services Manager at Harvesters, The Community Food Network. Also present will be some folks from the Kansas City food movement.

Behind a heightened social fervor for locally grown, sustainable foods and nutritious diets, Food Day has now become an annual reminder to blaze that path. Across the country, some 3,200 often differing events took place last year, from local affairs to community festivals to numerous school activities to a national conference.

Crafting a fine meal by transforming local, organic bounty into plates whether savored alone, tête-à-tête or around a communal table has few rivals. Food Day is not a one day event, but rather builds through the year and culminates on October 24 and afterwards.
