Below is an announcement from the Evanston Food Council
The Evanston Food Council, under our new project and website -- Evanston Eats at http://www.evanstoneats.net/-- will be posting ALL Evanston-based "Food and Farm" events (and other announcements). We hope that the Evanston Eats: Field to Fork site will soon be a complete snapshot of Evanston's food and farm economy.
Once we have the current snapshot, we can then analyze what part of the Evanston economy is "community-based" (local) and which part is global. We're also developing a newsletter to include events, announcements, and analysis.
Here are some upcoming Evanston events (free, open to all, and for general audience unless otherwise noted).
April 4 (Thursday): Evanston History Center lecture & discussion at 7 p.m.
"Preserving the Family Table: The Founding of Evanston's Community Kitchen"
Learn about the woman-run cooperative housekeeping venture, the Evanston Community Kitchen, founded as a canning kitchen during World War I. Can also be seen as a response to the anxieties felt from shifting gender roles and class relations after WWI. $10 for non-members, reservations recommended.

April 6 (Saturday: Evanston TreeKeepers Work Day
April 25 (Thursday: NU Sustainable Food Talks
"Can Meat be Truly Sustainable?"
Is it possible to sustainably raise meat and procure it without costing valuable land and water resources? What are the current costs? Where do you buy sustainable meat? Why is sustainably raised meat hard to find? Does it even taste better than conventionally raised meat?
April 27 (Saturday): Evanston TreeKeepers Earth Day events at Evanston Ecology Center
