Classes: Food Forward’s Foodsteader Series

Food Forward's Foodsteader Series

The incredibly effective local non-profit Food Forward is launching a new hands on workshop series.  Following on the heels of their successful Can It! Academy the Foodsteader workshops will be lead by local experts who know their stuff and who live to pay it forward in the most direct way, by teaching you how to become a better food maker.  All proceeds go to Food Forward to help them in their mission.
Food Forward rescues fresh local produce that would otherwise go to waste, connecting this abundance with people in need, and inspiring others to do the same.

Here are the first two workshops on the schedule:
