Mary Trotochaud of Everyday Pottery in Belmont donated these bowls for the MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee's April 30 Empty Bowl Supper in Belfast.

Beautiful Bowls, Savory Soup, Art, Music and Friends

MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee Empty Bowl Supper

With music by Happytown and hands-on pottery demo by Russell Kahn

The April 30 Empty Bowl Supper in Belfast, a benefit for the MOFGA-El Salvador Sistering Committee's work, promises to be better than ever this year, with a celebration of 15 years of sistering and solidarity and with a chance to try your hand at making a clay pot.

The Sistering Committee, part of MOFGA, holds this fundraiser annually, thanks to the generosity of the Unitarian Universalist Church, which donates the space; to many Maine potters who donate their beautiful bowls; to the Back 40 Bakehouse, which donates bread; and to the Belfast Co-op Store, which donates drinks, butter and more.

Participants get to buy one of these handsome bowls and fill it with soup made by Cheryl Wixson of Cheryl Wixson's Kitchen and featuring Maine organic ingredients from MOFGA-certified organic Happytown Farm and Rabbit Hill Farm – all for just $15 ($35 maximum for families).

Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
It’s time to rebuild a system that supports local food and farms
Portland Press Herald - 1/27/2012.
Op-ed by Chellie Pingree – There aren't many news items that get your attention faster than a story about a food recall. Whether it's listeria in cantaloupes or salmonella in peanut butter, the news that the food we eat and feed our families might be contaminated is unsettling. Most of the time the outbreak is limited to some other part of the country and it's easy to think we here in Maine are safe.
What's Gotten Into Us?
Maine Public Broadcasting - 1/27/2012.
McKay Jenkins, author and professor of English and Director of Journalism at the University of Delaware focused on the connections between the chemicals we are exposed to and health. Jenkins discussed how synthetic chemicals, such as BPA, that are used in common products make their way into our bodies. In his book, What’s Gotten Into Us, he wrote a lot about Maine's "Body of Evidence" study in which 13 Maine people were tested for dozens of chemicals used in common products.
The facts of knife
Grist - 1/27/2012.
By Kurt Michael Friese – The only thing separating you from eating sustainably on the cheap might be a nice, sharp blade — and the knife skills to use it.
Commentary in “Nature”: can economy bear what oil prices have in store?
Energy Bulletin - 1/27/2012.
By Eureka Staff (Univ. of Washington) – Stop wrangling over global warming and instead reduce fossil-fuel use for the sake of the global economy. That's the message from two scientists, one from the University of Washington and one from the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, who say in the current issue of the journal Nature (Jan. 26) that the economic pain of a flattening oil supply will trump the environment as a reason to curb the use of fossil fuels.
