September 12, 2013 – Halifax, N.S. – The Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market is launching a ‘Lunch & Learn’ series this fall. Everyone is welcome. The ‘Lunch & Learn’ sessions will take place at the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market every Friday from noon to 1:00 p.m. starting September 13, 2013 and running until December 6, 2013. The cost per session is $2 and does not include food – bring your own or pick up something tasty at the Market. The first session will focus on school lunch solutions and will be hosted by Wendy McCallum, a registered holistic nutritionist.
The Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market hosted a series of public engagement sessions earlier this year. One of the themes coming out of those sessions was the interest in community programing and educational classes to be held at the Market. The ‘Lunch & Learn’ series will feature food demonstrations, wellness workshops, environmental sustainability and will explore issues relating to the local food movement. Sessions will be hosted by local chefs, nutritionists and local artisans.
