6th Annual East Concord Pork Festival, Concord, New Hampshire, August 16, 2015

Grace Episcopal Church Presents the 6th Annual East Concord Pork Festival

On Sunday, August 16, from 12pm -2:30pm, bring your family and friends to this year's sixth annual East Concord Pork Festival at Grace Episcopal Church/Merrill Park in East Concord, NH. Enjoy a homemade meal of roast pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, jambalaya, baked beans, potato salad, cole slaw, brownies and ice cream. Lots of family fun including touch-a-truck, a bounce house and live music by Balladeer Jim Barnes, plus a variety of raffles. This event is free to the public, but donations are welcomed. All proceeds go towards the Church’s Take-A-Tote ministry to feed Concord’s hungry schoolchildren.

The Take- A-Tote program was developed as an outreach goal of the Bishop's Committee in 2009 to provide weekend "totes," packed with food that is nutritious, easy-to-prepare and nonperishable. Children who receive free or reduced-cost lunches during the school week often have little food support at home on the weekend.  By delivering bags each week filled with cereal, pasta, soup cups, ramen noodles, as well as fresh fruit, breakfast bars and packages of crackers and cheese, Grace Episcopal Church has ensured that at least 50 families at Mill Brook School have supplemental food to nourish their children on the weekend. Last year, the Concord School Board recognized Grace Episcopal Church as “Champion for Children” because of this program. This year, due to the generosity of the community, we have been able to double the number of bags each week. Visit us at:

SF Street Food Festival - San Francisco, August 16, 2015

90 Vendors. 1 Street. A lot of hungry people.

From Saturday, August 15th through Sunday, August 16th La Cocina will join The Midway and Noise Pop in hosting our 7th Annual Street Food Festival, this year at Forest City’s iconic Pier 70 location in San Francisco’s Dogpatch neighborhood. From the site where the Transbay Tunnel was built, we invite you to join over 100 owner-operated food businesses representing the best of the Bay for a free-to-enter celebration of hard work, well-made food and the vibrant and inclusive food economy that we all dream of.

La Cocina’s San Francisco Street Food Festival is a celebration of community, culture and entrepreneurial spirit. Where micro–entrepreneurs and informal food vendors cook next to James Beard Award winners and Michelin–starred chefs. Where every block is a barbacoa to bhelpuri to banh mi exploration of flavor (although probably not all at once), all on the same street, and all at the same price. Located in San Francisco’s Mission District, the festival showcases the best of the Bay Area’s local food entrepreneurs and restaurants.

The event is hosted by La Cocina, a non–profit incubator kitchen working to formalize food businesses for low–income and immigrant food entrepreneurs.
