Children and Family Food Traditions 10:30 am
Shorts: I Tell My Children, Roses Sing on New Snow, Soup of the Day
Food traditions bring family members together to appreciate each other while making and eating food. Join us for three short films about food followed by the hands-on learning of three cultural dishes (crostini, rice balls, tortillas) presented by local Boulder families. Eat what you make and take home recipes. Also, Natural Grocers will offer a dish that has to do with establishing new family traditions of healthy eating.
In this new program, representatives from the nonprofit organizations Conscious Alliance, Cooking Matters, Metro Caring, Noble Grain Alliance, and Sister Carmen Community Center will serve food representative of their organizations and speak with audience members before the program. The Festival will screen short food films that the nonprofits have selected to represent their organizations. Nonprofit speakers will address the audience and participate in a panel discussion.
