According to the organizers:

We’d like to invite New York parents, and your children, to our new family food fair, One More Bite, on Sunday, Oct. 23, at the Green Building in Gowanus.

At One More Bite we’ll be encouraging kids to try new foods and learn how good food is made. Local farmers, activists and entrepreneurs will offer healthy and delicious samples of their products, and lead kids of all ages in hands-on activities. As your kids learn about the food system, and try new flavors, they’ll also be seeking out stamps for the special passbook they’ll receive when you arrive, and win a treat of their choice at the end for their efforts.

Your “stops” throughout the day include Pure Genius ProvisionsMcClure’s PicklesUmi KitchenCava GrillTrue Made FoodsTuckrboxAll GranolaGotham Greens and more for delicious samples, plus partners like:

–Annie Novak of Growing Chefs and Eagle Street Rooftop Farm, who will be leading a series of activities about Monarch butterflies and how they pollinate our favorite snacks

City Growers, who will explore all the different parts of plants that we eat through art projects–from leaves to roots to flowers and fruits

Pure Food Kids, who will ask kids to measure the amount of sugar they think a processed food contains

Once you’ve had your fill you can do “food coloring” with Private Picassos between 11am and 2pm using apples, pears and mini pumpkins as the medium for their masterpieces. So come dressed for a (washable) mess!

And parents, we haven’t forgotten you. We’ve scheduled three great, drop-in talks for mealtime inspiration too:

  • Finding the joy in family meals with Kate Huling of Marlow Goods and a contributor to Dinner at the Long Table
  • A panel with nutritionists who are also parents on what they do, and don’t eat at home (and how that’s probably different for everyone)
  • Tips on encouraging the pickiest of eaters to try new foods with Andrea Kapner of Tiny Turnips Kitchen. 

Tickets are $5 per adult (kids are free). If you’d like to participate, or have any questions, get in touch!
