National Food Day – October 24

One of the many wonderful aspects of living on this island is that we experience definite transitions to all four seasons. After two months of very warm weather (by our standards) we now enjoy the crisp, clear mornings, balmy afternoons, and cool evenings of Fall. The mix of produce coming into the restaurant reflects the warmer climate of Eastern Washington, and also the cooling temperatures of the island.

Whether our food is coming from Eastern Washington or a couple miles up the road, we are passionate about sourcing sustainably-grown food for our guests. It’s a simple equation: clean farming practices = healthy environment = healthy people. That’s why we ask you to observe Food Day, on October 24.

Founded last year by the non-profit Center for Science in the Public Interest, it is a celebration of healthy food, aimed at tackling the significant number of fatalities caused by the typical American diet of overly processed food. In order for us, as a nation, to be healthy, we need to change how Americans eat, adjust agribusiness practices, and ensure that government policies reflect the needs of the populace. This includes treating the animals that nourish us humanely, without hormones and steroids, and eliminating the chemicals in our foods.

So on October 24th, we challenge you to consume only locally grown, minimally processed, sustainably farmed foods that did not come wrapped in plastic. Can you do it? Let us know your experience. Send your comments to
