Enjoy Awesome Earth Day Eats in Sandpoint
This annual Earth Day event features fresh, local food prepared by professionals.
We're getting geared up to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Earth Day this Thursday in Sandpoint.
The Spokesman-Review featured the event Sunday, focusing on the terrific food being prepared by local restaurants who are using local farm-fresh ingredients. It's been an annual tradition to serve local food on Earth Day, which helps promote healthy eating and reduce our carbon footprint by buying locally.
As Mimi Feuling, a Boundary County farmer, said, "Buying local gets the consumer fresh, healthy, nutrient-rich food. It supports the local economy and builds the fabric of our communities."
The Sandpoint Earth Day Festival, cohosted this year by ICL and the Lake Pend Oreille Waterkeeper, has a lot more to offer, too:
- Kids activities, The Lorax, face-painting, crafts
- Live music by local performers
- Nontoxic household cleaner demonstrations
- Live owls giving a hoot
- No-host beer and wine bar
- Information from more than 20 area organizations
The event is from 4 to 8 pm Thursday at the Sandpoint Business and Event Center.
