COOL Cuisine is broadening our outreach this year including community actions (COOL Commotions) that help those in need have access to fresh vegetables and fruit and encourage plant-based eating. This is the first of 4 quarterly events (Jan/April/July/October) where we:
1) meet at the Farmers Market food court (11:30), show the vendors with plant based options some love by buying brunch/lunch to eat together at the tables (11:30-12:45),
2) then we will supply the volunteer power to the Food Recovery Network at UC Davis and Yolo Food Bank by collecting donated veggies and fruit from the farmers (12:45 meet at C/3rd),
3) transport over to Solano Park Apartments (a short bike/walk away) to
4) set up and distribute the food to residents (1:30-3:00).
Wear warm clothes--this is all outdoors. Be prepared to bike/walk or drive between locations.
