Thank you to everyone who came to our

Flour Power Baker’s Workshop at CAST!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We had so much fun chatting with you all. The outpouring of support for our community is humbling. And, oh, all the loaves of bread we will donate! We are so grateful to everyone who came out to learn more about Slow Food East End’s Flour Power program… now, let’s get baking!
———–
If you missed our event, don’t fret! Here are some important takeaways:
—–
You do NOT need to be an experienced baker to sign up.
—–
We will hold your hand throughout the process — we even give you a “hotline” number to call with questions.
—–
Everyone loves the bread (yes, we ate a lot).
—–
We are always looking for more bakers.
—–
While we hope you bake each cycle, we understand life gets in the way. So you can bake when you can and don’t worry about it if you have to skip weeks.
—–
You can ALWAYS sign up to be a baker for Flour Power!
Please don’t let the fact that you have a busy life stop you from signing up. Just head to our website to learn more about how the program works. The next baking cycle is February 13th, so there’s still plenty of time!
—–
Once you sign up we’ll send you an email with a baking video, and the drop-off procedure, and get you started in no time. We even have a Facebook group so that you can connect with other bakers in the community. Click below to sign up and bake for any of the food pantries in our Flour Power Program.
—–
We can always use your helping hands!

Our fireside meetup at Quogue Wildlife Refuge was a huge success!

—–
Thank you Quogue Wildlife Refuge for hosting us. It was an amazing opportunity for our Board to meet so many people from our amazing East End community. We love discussing our programs, and we are so happy so many of you are interested in what we do. Slow Food East End Feed the forks program shared some cider and soup from Sydney’s with friends & neighbors. A big thank your to Jessica Easton owner at Belle and Whistle Weddings for sponsoring the event. We are especially grateful for the number of people who showed interest in volunteering their time to help in our programs.

We are offering volunteer opportunities to our local youth that not only gives them a chance to document community service hours for school but also give them the chance to learn valuable life lessons in agriculture, sustainability & community. We are also creating a grant application for seniors in high school on the East End who plan to attend college for agricultural courses or similar studies that align with Slow Foodā€™s mission.
