Tomorrow is the monthly Community Controlled Food Initiative (CCFI) food pick up and Good Food Feast. We will be gathering at Kheprw Institute, on July 8th from 3-5pm, as we do every Second Saturday of the month – sharing food and building our community program. Usually, you don’t find out what is in your bag of goodies until you arrive, but we are going to start letting the cat out of the bag a little early. If you don’t like spoilers you may want to stop reading now! For any of you that are planners like me, this early heads up will give you a chance to plan how you are going to cook all this delicious food. Can we get a little drumroll for what is in this week’s bag?

What you can cook with this month’s share
If you have picked up shares you know that there are always a few recipes included to help you out in case you need ideas for how to cook a certain ingredient. That sheet will still be there on Saturday, but now you can also come back to this post and find the recipes again. For those of you not yet getting a share, what are you waiting for? Until you do join this great community, you can find some great recipes that will use in-season vegetables you can find at the store or the farmers market.
Do you have some favorite recipes that you can make with this month’s share? Maybe something with those beautiful rainbow carrots? Let us know your recipe ideas by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can share them with the community!
Don’t forget to join us at the Kheprw Institute at 3pm on Saturday July 8th and every Second Saturday for the Good Food Feast, which includes a cooking demonstration and community potluck! Stop in and see our program in action and inquire about shares available for walk-in customers. Make sure to reserve your CCFI share by the first Saturday of the month to be a part of our monthly cooperative fresh food purchase. Support the program and learn more at food.kheprw.org.
