Hunger Action Day

This week at PRFM…
Join us for Hunger Action Day and learn about how we can work together to take action against hunger in our community. The Atlanta Community Food Bank, Second Helpings, and Wholesome Wave GA will all be on site to share, educate, and help you get involved. A few examples of PRFM taking action against hunger: through Second Helpings, market vendors have donated over 7,000 lbs of food to in-need residents; and through Wholesome Wave GA, our market accepts and doubles SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program/food stamp) benefits so that $1=$2 to make healthy local food more accessible to all. You won’t want to miss a Saturday morning full of great info as well as live music from Alex Gordon, and a chef demo and cookbook sale/signing with Hugh Acheson!

We just can’t say enough about how awesome our local celeb chef Hugh Acheson is. But we sure did try in our post last year, so check out our love letter to Hugh here. Since last year’s demo, he’s racked up a few more accolades: in 2012, he’s received the James Beard Award for Best Chef Southeast, the Mentor Chef award from, and the James Beard Award for Best Cookbook in the field of American Cooking for his first cookbook A New Turn in the South: Southern Flavors Reinvented for Your Kitchen. So, take a turn into the demo tent this Saturday for a little learning, tasting, and cookbook-signing fun. The brow never disappoints, y’all.
