Food Changes Everything

Greater Sarasota's Eat Local Week is an annual, week-long celebration of the best of local food and farming in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Each year, dozens of partners come together to offer dozens of events, including farm and garden tours, farm-to-fork dinners, "reskilling" workshops, educational programs, community discussions, and hands-on activities.

Our sixth annual Week will take place Saturday, October 22nd through Sunday, October 30th, 2016. This year's theme will be "Food Changes Everything," exploring the interconnections between food and topics as diverse as health, the natural environment, art and culture, social justice, the economy, and more!
