Eat To Live, Organic DinnerIt was an unusually green group that dined at Bart's Beanery Monday
night. The group of about 30 people from Windsor and neighboring towns
enjoyed a three course organic meal. It was the first meeting of "Eat
To Live" a group who's mission is to indulge in an informal organic
meal once a month and discuss healthy living ideas. The group is part
of the Green Committee, part of the Windsor Chamber of Commerce.
Jane Garibay, Executive Director of the Chamber and Paula Pierce, past
president, greeted members of the new group as they came in with
generous donations for the Windsor Food Bank. Many pounds of canned
goods were donated as well as $160 in cash donations.
After a brief introduction about the group, the lovely organic dinner
was served including green salad, lentil soup, roasted vegetables and
dinner rolls followed by vanilla quinoa pudding.
After dinner, while folks enjoyed their organic tea or coffee, the
evening's speaker, Raye Hodgson, gave a brief but enlightening talk on
the theories and realities of GM (genetically modified) foods. Some
lively Q and A followed.
Next month the group is planning a special Valentine's organic
spaghetti dinner on Monday, February 14th. A representative from
Peaceful River Massage will discuss "How to integrate massage into a
healthy lifestyle." There will be a fee of $10 to cover costs.
"We're happy to host the Eat to Live dinner," says Bart's owner, Don
Trinks. To RSVP for the next dinner (Monday, Feb. 14 at Bart's
