A night to remember with fantastic food, great guest speakers and the presentation of our first ever SILT Growing Good Award!
Lyssa Wade has made it her life’s mission to raise consciousness through food awareness, providing access to the highest quality veggie and vegan cuisine, and encouraging an overall healthier lifestyle. Her passion made her a perfect guest speaker for the 2019 SILT Foodie Fest! Check out this great video of the Veggie Thumper in action, then come see her LIVE on Thursday, November 21, 2019!
Since 1985, Practical Farmers of Iowa has been working hard at their mission to equip farmers to build resilient farms and communities while representing a diversity of farmers. Their efforts to promote the overall well being and advancement of the larger sustainable agriculture community make SILT proud to recognize their hard work and dedication!
“Without PFI, we wouldn’t have had the luxury of creating SILT,” explained Executive Director and Co-Founder Suzan Erem. “PFI trains many sustainable table food farmers seeking the affordable land we’re protecting through land donations and easements.”
The SILT Board, many of whom are PFI members, agreed that PFI was the best choice for the first award, sending a message that nonprofits can recognize one another’s good work. The award is dedicated to organizations and individuals who increase the impact of a healthy food movement in Iowa.
With a variety of Baskets from Food Co-ops, Dinners for 2 at Area Restaurants, Shitake Mushroom Logs and more, we expect this to be our most exciting Silent Auction yet!
