Revitalizing Grace Street
Join us for GRAZE on Grace which aims to promote the amazing locally-owned restaurants and food producers that make Richmond, Virginia a great place to live and visit, while highlighting an exciting and growing part of downtown. The inaugural GRAZE on Grace event promises to entertain and satiate you with over twenty-five restaurants and at least that many specialty food providers. Hosted by Downtown Neighborhood Association, GRAZE on Grace benefits FeedMore and Slow Food, and is part of a roving food series where close-to-home food advocates are the focal point.
A Fine Fall Feast
The event takes place on Sunday, November 9 from 12-5pm and occupies three blocks on Grace from 4th to 7th Streets. Admission to this fall harvest is FREE and for just $3 per sample, the public can taste signature dishes from over 25 of Richmond’s finest local, seasonal and sustainable restaurants. The event will also offer fresh Virginia produce, meats, cheeses, herbs, artisan breads and confections straight from local organic farms and specialty food providers. Beverages will be provided by several of Virginia’s finest wineries and all local brews provided by Taste the Local program from Brown Distributing.
As a part of Slow Food's efforts to provide educational, thought-provoking and award winning screening's focused on food, we are proud to partner with AppleCart to bring you Dog Days.
Dog Days tells the story of an entrepreneur who takes a leap of faith to build partnerships with local mobile food vendors in D.C. to enable them to offer healthier and more diverse options to their customers. The film promotes urban farming and raises awareness around regulation issues preventing the growth of mobile food in D.C. and nationwide. More at www.dogdaysthemovie.com.
"The documentary "Dog Days" sheds a soft light on the oft-ignored players in the District's long, long battle to bring better food to the streets." - The Washington Post
Thanks to the Moving Picture Institute (MPI), Dog Days the film is currently being screened on college campuses and at festivals around the country.
