I'm pleased to tell you all about the Eat Real Festival that's being held in Jack London Square in Oakland the weekend of August 28-30.
What is it about? Well, from the festival website, the Eat Real Festival was "founded in 2008, as a social venture created to inspire eaters to choose tasty, healthy, good food. Through a vibrant, local festival in Oakland, CA, and a focus on delicious and sustainable “street food,” Eat Real puts eaters in contact with the real people -- the farmers, chefs, and producers -- who make our food. Eat Real Festival will donate a percentage of its profit to several California organizations promoting access to healthy and affordable food, entrepreneurship and economic development."
And since beer goes well with most street food, they've included a Beer Shed with a great list of over 15 local breweries already scheduled to participate, and the website promises more.
To me, this is what food is all about. It's about eating something good, simple, and accessible produced in a sustainable way. Anything that puts the producers of what we eat and drink closer to the consumers is definitely something I support. If you agree, I look foreword to seeing you there.
