Local foods movement grows

(Continued)

Big Four Café owner and chef Adam Israel said, “I want to bring local foods more into the restaurant scene in Batesville. I think Walhill does a very good job. For the rest of us, it’s minimal ... My big plan for this year is to serve seasonal foods” and be a liaison to other restaurants.

A central marketplace “is what restaurants need.” It would be easier for chefs to shop there than deal with farmers coming one by one to their businesses. The challenge will be for eateries to provide local foods at reasonable prices. “It’s going to be a learning experience.”

Cooley observed, “We have an incredibly diverse group of people here.” She asked attendees to huddle around tables to discuss three areas: volunteers, education and networking, and a potential distribution center.

Attendees at that meeting and interested area residents are invited to the next monthly Food and Growers Association of Laughery Valley and Environs local foods potluck supper May 13 at 6 p.m. at David and Betty Lou Walsman’s woods north of Oldenburg. Participants should bring a dish to share and RSVP to get directions: 812-934-3107 or svdecadedance@gmail.com.

Debbie Blank can be contacted at debbie.blank@batesvilleheraldtribune.com or 812-934-4343, Ext. 113.
