Happy Food Day 2015!

Happy Food Day!  As you may know, every October 24th is National Food Day.  In past years I've taken a passive approach to this day.  This year, I decided to volunteer for Nola Fresh Food Day, a coordinating event that connected volunteers to over a dozen sites around the city.  I worked to help prepare an urban garden, newly obtained by SPROUT NOLA, for fall planting.  I then went to visit the brand new farm stand operated by Sankofa Community Development Corporation in the Lower Ninth Ward, expanding fresh food options in that part of the city.  Here are the pictures, embarrassing sweat stains and all!
