Lit Youngstown on the Wild Side

Food for Thought, our book & potluck club is taking up Eating on the Wild Side by Jo Robinson. eating-on-the-wild-side

We are learning about the wild origins of the fruits and vegetables we love, the most healthful varieties available today, and how to store and cook them to get the greatest cancer-fighting, health promoting benefits. The book is packed with information, told in an easy style, with terrific charts and summaries.

Haven’t read the book yet? No worries. Come join us. 6:00-7:00, Thurs. October 13 at Cultivate Co-op Cafe, 901  Elm St.

The potluck is informal: bring something you made or a prepared food or drink. The evening will coincide with Lake to River Co-op’s Online Market pick-up night.

The monthly gatherings are free, open to the public and wheelchair accessible. Childcare is available for $5 per child with an advance reservation. To make a reservation for childcare, please call 330-540-1480.
