Eat, Drink, Run

If the idea of drinking beer, eating bagels and chili and running four-ish miles sounds like a good time to you, register for the Beer and Bagel Run on Sunday, Nov 2. Register early for a reduced cost, and note that there is no registration on the day of the run. Registration includes admission to the run, a t-shirt, and the aforementioned eclectic combination of beer, bagels and chili.

Food Panel Discussion

The Heartland 2050 project is hosting a panel discussion on Sept 25 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. The topic is creating an inclusive food system for the local region. Come talk about this important topic while sipping on free beer from Upstream Brewing Company. Food trucks will also be there, and everyone in attendance gets a $5 voucher to use toward a food truck purchase.

Another Food Advocate Opportunity

If community gardens are near and dear to your heart, consider attending the interim hearing hosted by Senator Burke Harr on Sept 25 at 1:30 at the North Star Foundation facility. Here they’ll discuss how to encourage communities to create and sustain community gardens with an emphasis on water. They’re encouraging people to show up with a five minute testimony prepared, but this isn’t mandatory.

Full Cycle Supper

Progressive dinners are fun, but you why walk from one food place to another when you can bike there? The Full Cycle Supper is a collaborative fundraising effort between Community Bike Project Omaha and Big Muddy Urban Farm. It takes place Sept 28 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. and tickets start at $35. Bicycle from one plot to another on the farm, enjoying another course of the meal at each stop. All in all, you’ll bike around four miles and come away with a full stomach.
