Let’s Gather For Good!

Shuswap Food Action Potluck & CNOY Launch party!

Saturday Feb. 4th  5:30-8pm Okanagan College – Salmon Arm Campus!

We’re excited to host a potluck as it’s been such a long time and with this year’s Coldest Night slogan being Gather for Good, we can’t think of a more appropriate theme and image as that of people gathered around a table, enjoying a meal together, building community, enjoying company and also talking about some big issues!
When: Saturday, Feb. 4th from 5:30-8pm
Where: Okanagan College Student building/cafeteria
Who: The community! We invite our Team Captains, CNOY walkers, SFAS supporters, families and those who want to share a meal!
What: Shuswap Food Action will be providing our Souper Meals soups for sampling and as our potluck contribution as well as 6 Beans Roasting coffee, tea and Unusually Good Food Co. apple cider.
WE encourage you to bring a side dish to share and, as always, as local as possible! Make something or support a local food producer and bring something of theirs!
Why: we will show a brief presentation about what SFAS has been doing the last year and plans for the future. We’ll also be available to answer questions about CNOY and how to be involved.
So let’s eat! Eat Local wherever possible! Celebrate food and our good fortune to be here in the Shuswap.

Sunday Sessions for Self Sufficiency

On Sundays from November to March, we will be presenting a series of topics pertaining to growing, raising, or making your own food and medicine.

There is so much we can learn from the experience of people throughout the region and from each other! We encourage you to come to as many Sunday Sessions as possible to grow and share your knowledge!

Talks will be hosted at Buckerfield’s in Salmon Arm in their upstairs conference room.

To make these sessions accessible to all, each talk will have a sliding scale fee of $5 – $15. All fees collected will go towards the cost of the series and to support the Shuswap Community Teaching Garden.

This project is a continuation of the Urban Agriculture series presented by Buckerfield’s, Shuswap Food Action, and the Salmon Arm Fair and Shuswap Lake Agricultural Association during the Fall Fair.

If you have topics you would like to have covered, please let us know! If you have valuable experience and knowledge to share with your Shuswap Community, please get in touch! Email Melanie at projects@shuswapfood.ca
