Local Food Fair brings community together


Every year, The Food Fair in Stevens Point brings people together to celebrate the community and the food that's grown there.

Hundreds piled into Stevens Point Area High School for all the fun the fair had to offer.

Central Rivers Farmshed invited businesses, restaurants and farms to attend workshops.

They had the opportunity to learn bee keeping, composting, artisan baking and more.

"We bring in farmers, we bring in local businesses, we bring in local restaurants and then we bring in the community," says Farmshed Executive Director Layne Cozzolino, "to share a potato dinner and then be able to share their wares and really have a community envisioned event."

The potato bar was stacked with butter, sour cream and all the fixings.

To support the fair by donating, sponsoring, promoting or volunteering email info@farmshed.org.
