I've been thinking about how great it would be to have a Community Potluck this winter in Meredith. I have lived in Meredith my whole life and just finished my first semester down at UNH. At school I am part of this group called SlowFoodUNH - an extension of the international Slow Food movement. As a group we focus on the mindful eating of gathering together to cook and appreciate the way food has the power to bring people together. We try our best to support local farmers and to spread the word of how important it is to do so. We host community potlucks about once or twice a month and open it to the UNH/Durham community and it has been such a blast. It’s a great way to meet a lot of people and to enjoy some great homemade food. Wouldn't it be great to host one of these for our Lakes Region Community at the Community Center in Meredith? I was thinking it would be great to have it in January and have people in attendance bring in either cash donations or non-perishable items to go towards the Meredith Food Bank.
