Denver Jewish Community Center, Denver, CO
Spend your day learning, celebrating and hands-on doing at the intersection of food, sustainability and Jewish life
A local twist on Hazon’s successful national, multi-day Food Conference, this Food Festival is a unique, one-day taste of the Jewish Food Movement. At this day-long conference with more than 30 dynamic sessions to choose from, Colorado foodies, beekeepers, rabbis, nutritionists, chefs, farmers, vegans and omnivores come together to explore the dynamic interplay of food, sustainability, Jewish traditions, and contemporary life.
All day at the festival, vendors and organizations show off their wares and spread the word to a crowd of passionate foodies and food-concerned consumers. The Shuk features local purveyors from whom you can taste and purchase local, sustainable food, art and other goodies.
Many Food Festival participants make new connections with other local organizations and initiatives at the Festival and go on to get involved with these groups. Here are what some participants hoped to do after the Food Festival in the Rocky Mountains:
“Eat more local food. Be involved with Ekar Farm.”
“Visit the chicken and goat co-ops in Boulder.”
“Check out Boulder Food Rescue.”
“Bring what I learned to JCC Denver ECC.”
“As a result of the Food Festival, I received offers to do presentations at DJDS and Temple Emanuel.”
Please check back soon for a list of sessions being offered.
