On Saturday, February 22, at 10:30 a.m., the South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) and the East End Food Institute will team up to present "Kitchen Table Conversations" a food-focused workshop and tasting for all ages. The workshop will include an introduction to the institute and a discussion about its local farm-to-table food system and the challenges this system faces. The workshop will be held at the East End Food Institute in Southampton and will conclude with a food tasting

"The local food system impacts our regional economy, the natural environment, and food equity and access,” said East End Food Institute Executive Director Kate Fullam. “Many people take for granted the food they eat every day, and this is an opportunity to explore becoming more familiar with where your food comes from, the people who produced it, and how it was grown or made."

Participants in the workshop will learn how the institute works with local farms to support them in recruiting and training apprentices and preserving their harvest. The efforts of this communal project will keep more food within the region and tackle supply chain obstacles. Attendees will also get to participate in a hands-on activity that illustrates the concepts talked about, as well as sample a seasonal specialty from their kitchen.

There is a $5 fee per person to attend. The program is for adults, teens, and children ages six and up. Advance registration is required. Call 631-537-9735 or email info@sofo.org to sign up.
