'Trivial' matters will be pursued at LUSH Valley food action society AGM
For those interested in all aspects of food security, local foods, local agriculture and the like, please join LUSH Valley Food Action Society at its Annual General Meeting and Pot Luck on Thursday, May 13th from 6- 8 pm.

The featured guest presenter will be Jean DuGal, Courtenay resident, columnist for the Word, and founder of LUSH Valley. Jean, a frugal living maven known for her dry wit, will entertain us with a Food Trivia contest, testing our local food smarts. There will be prizes for correct answers!

The pot luck portion will begin promptly at 6 pm. Everyone attending is asked to provide a dish featuring local foods. Please bring a card with the ingredients listed; a prize will be given to the most creative dish using local ingredients! Beverages will be provided. The business of the AGM will take place at 6:30 pm, followed by dessert and the trivia contest.
