CHCSA HALLOWEEN POT LUCK
CHCSA is so glad to be hosting the Halloween Potluck this year! We thought we would send out a separate newsletter about it this week, as we have lot going on. Here's all the details:
When: October 30th, during the pick up from 5-7pm
Bring a dish to share! You can sign up tomorrow, or the following week to bring a dish. We will be having a best dish contest! Everyone who comes, can vote on their favorite dish in each category, and we'll announce the winners in the following week's newsletter- so bring something awesome!
The food categories are:
- Vegetarian entrees
- Snacks (this could be something like carmel corn, or spiced nuts)
- Other Tasty Desserts (since you can never have too many)
There will be fun-fill activities for kids (and adults who are young at heart). We haven't decided on them all, but there will most likely be face painting, and pumpkin painting.
And, as it's the day before all-hallows; costumes are encouraged!
Brooklyn Honey Share
We will be offering local honey for sale at the next pick up - October 23rd. It will be available for cash purchase at the pick up site.
Honey Bee Local 718 (www.honeybeelocal.com) is a small apiary in Crown Heights that focuses on sustainable, treatment-free beekeeping practices. Unlike most beekeepers, they do not use any chemicals or antibiotics in my hives.The honey is raw, which means it is unheated and unprocessed, and contains pollen, small bits of wax, and natural enzymes that are often missing from conventional honey. They also sell 100% pure beeswax candles with all-cotton wicking, ranging from $3 to $10.
- 6oz for $15
- 3oz for $7.50
