Kidoinfo + Skill It Team up with Edible Rhody for Edible Rhody KIDS Event on October 13th!

[ 0 ] October 2, 2012 |

Edible Rhody will be hosting its first ever Edible Rhody KIDS event at the Hope Street Farmers’ Market at Lippitt Park, Providence, in collaboration with Kidoinfo and Skill It on Saturday, October 13th. We’re thrilled to partner with these two awesome local food organizations.

The event will include: samples of great tasting kid-friendly, farm-friendly lunchbox recipes; take-home recipe cards; children’s books from  Books on the Square available for purchase, including farm, garden and cookbook titles featured in Edible Rhody KIDS. We will have a raffle of eco-friendly, reusable lunch boxes provided by Whole Foods Market and Kreatelier; fun and educational farmers’ market activities for kids; coloring crafts and more. Proceeds from the book sales will be donated to the Farm Fresh Rhode Island Healthy Foods, Healthy Families program.

I collaborate with Edible Rhody each season to create Edible Rhody KIDS, a feature page in Edible Rhody magazine and its website, designed to encourage kids, together with their parents, to learn about where their food comes from, to cook and eat together and to learn how local food builds community.

The October 13 event is being co-hosted with Skill It, dedicated to teaching children practical skills for everyday living: cooking, sewing, gardening and more, through hosted classes and online classes. You may recognize Skill It founder, Leah Cherry from Kidoinfo Conversations and as a new Kidoinfo contributing writer.
