Tasty Links #3

1) A take on taxing soda - what the impact would be.
2) Make your own girl scout cookies - thin mints, samoas, and tagalongs (apologies to Jadyn, my girl scout cookie supplier).
3) March 10th - lobbying for local foods.
4) A couple opportunities for learning/engagement about local foods issues in SW Ohio below:

The Southwest chapter OEFFA is presenting a series of programs this spring, all held at the Civic Garden Center, 2715 Reading Road. The programs begin at 2:00 p.m. and are open to the public. The discussion
on Sunday, March 21, will focus on "How to Eat Seasonally," featuring local OEFFA members who will share good places to find fresh food as well as ways to plan for the seasons when fresh food is not as
plentiful. The April 25th topic is "Factory Foods and You". The May 16th topic is "How to Buy Locally". For
further information and to RSVP, email swoeffa@gmail.com
