Bread for the City hosting city-wide sustainability party on 10.10.10

On October 10th, Bread for the City will proudly join with and organizations and communities across the world, in a "Global Work Party" -- a coordinated set of actions to make our communities more sustainable and carbon-neutral.

In the past few years, we’ve taken several steps to make our own community more sustainable. We’ve rescued tons and tons of food that would otherwise have gone to waste. We’ve begun to collect and distribute tens of thousands of reusable grocery bags through our food pantry. And we’ve even begun gardening on the roof!

Now our Northwest Center will be kind of a home-base for actions happening across the city.

Along with dozens of other local and national organizations, we’ll use 10.10.10 as an opportunity to celebrate these steps, share ideas and visions for a more sustainable and just future, pressure the government to follow our lead.

Come join us. The Hip Hop Caucus, with the Green the Block campaign and Roadside Organics, are throwing down a big Local Food Block Party on site at our Northwest Center. From noon to 4pm on Sunday October 10th, come enjoy free food prepared by local chefs using local ingredients -- and stay to enjoy local hip hop performances, plus demonstrations of cooking, gardening, weatherization and more. We’ll even be giving a sneak preview of something very exciting: a rooftop garden on top of our new facility!

RSVP on Facebook here.

Lots of things are happening in the city on 10.10.10 -- see the full list here. Head out to explore and then meet us back here!
