This is the image for the news article titled Community Celebration Sept. 16SAVE THE DATE! On Monday, Sept. 16, Portland families are invited to join hosts, Food Fuels Learning and the Portland Public Schools' Parent University, to see Food Fuels Learning in action at a Community Celebration. The free event will take place at Riverton Elementary School from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

This fun, family-friendly event will feature delicious food, fabulous speakers, and tons of interactive activities to learn about the different ways that food fuels learning and how we all can support students accessing nutritious food that allows them to attain their full potential.

Here's a sneak peak of some of the activities:
Charitable Foods: Distribution table from The Locker Project
Federal Nutrition Programs: Taste tests that include locally grown tomatoes
School Gardens: Container gardening demos (take home your very own tomato plant!)
Nutrition Education: Cooking demonstrations
Sustainable Practices: Sorting station to practice proper recycling and composting
