Fair Food Matters
Price It Right! A Workshop for Food Makers
Tuesday, October 13th, 6:30-8:30pm at Alamo
Drafthouse (180 Portage Street, Kalamazoo)
Join us for the Can-Do Kitchen's October workshop for small
businesses. If you've ever tried developing a food product, you
know that setting the price is hard. Don't let pricing stop you
from being a successful food business owner! Come learn from an
experienced store buyer, distributor, business counselor, and
seasoned food business owner about how they successfully approach
pricing. Visit the Can-Do
Kitchen page for more info and to register.
A Big Garden Thank you!
The Growing Matters
Garden program would like to thank all of the community members
who came to garden night this summer to help keep everything
growing. We are excited to have students come back to school
garden and enjoy the fall harvest! We would also like to
thank Women Who Care of Kalamazoo County and Food Dance for their
generous support of the Growing Matters Garden program.
Visit Bizarre Bazaar on Buy Local Day
28th, 11:00 am - 6:00pm @ Bell's
Do some holiday shopping (don't forget about yourself too!),
have a drink, and enjoy the vibe. This sale is full of eclectic,
unique, and yes...bizarre handmade goods. Thanks to the generosity
of Bell's Brewery, the organizers (Heidi LaGrow and Erin Abueva),
and all of the artists, the booth fees are donated to the Can-Do
Kitchen. This donation supports our food business incubation
programming and small, local businesses. Are you an artist
interested in vending? Visit the Can-Do
for more information.
