LYNNWOOD – Food Revolution Snohomish County, aimed at encouraging growing, cooking, preserving, and eating real healthy food, brings a new community event to Lynnwood on Sunday, May 20. The Celebration of Food Festival will be a free, family event where participants can taste, explore, and experience real food from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. “This event brings together people who are passionate about delicious, local, wholesome food,” said organizer Chris Hudyma. “Farmers, ranchers, culinary professionals, youth, students, and business owners will offer activities to inspire the enjoyment of real food.”

The event will include free samples, demos and displays of foods in categories throughout the center. A number of vendors will be on site, as well farms throughout the region including: Aldrich Farms of Bellingham, Chinook Farms of Snohomish, Garden Treasures Organic Farm of Arlington, Klesick Family Farm of Stanwood, Ninety Farms of Arlington, Willie Green’s Organic Farm of Monroe, and Rubberneck Farms of Edmonds, and local farmer’s markets. There will also be demonstrations by farm and garden professionals including WSU Snohomish County Extension to show how to grow food and where to purchase locally grown food. Experts and resources will be available to help both children (with help from Imagine Children’s Museum and Readers to Eaters) and adults to learn everything about growing, cooking, and preserving food.
