August 26, 2007 – One BIG Local Meal Arrives

Finally, the meal begins!  We’re not sure exactly how many people ate, but it may have been around 110.
The first people move through the local food line.  We used up all the plates and forks! The dishes all had notecards explaining what the dish is and the source of the food.


This is one dish that Iowans can eat locally year-round – salsa and corn tortilla chips.  I enjoyed eating from the mobile salsa tray!


Finally, the meal is over and the event grand organizer can breathe a sigh of satisfaction following a first-time event pulled off successfully.
