Join Heifer on Saturday evening, October 16, for a dinner of locally grown foods, followed by a panel discussion on the state of food in Arkansas. The 100 Mile Meal is an opportunity to learn about the issues facing Arkansas as we seek to provide good food, grown in balance with the earth, for all Arkansans.
Do you know where your food comes from? Have you ever wanted to be involved in a community garden or start your own? Did you know that there are food deserts where no fresh food can be found? Register for Heifer International’s 100 Mile Meal to discover the impact of individual food choices and how communities in Arkansas are working to support local farmers and change the way we eat.
