On Monday (Oct. 24), the San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity will host one of the largest Food Day events in South Texas. The SASIC is at 4616 San Pedro Ave.
Partnering with over 20 other nonprofits, agencies, organizations and other charter schools, this arts-infused charter school has cultivated a day of healthy food-focused educational excitement called “Academia FoodMania”.
Ranging from a hands-on food demonstration by the acclaimed chef, Fred Anthony Garza from Vegeria, San Antonio’s new all-vegan restaurant, to representatives from Sunny Day Animal Sanctuary to spokespeople from The Quarry Farmers and Ranchers Market this day (which is open to the public) has it all.
This endeavor highlights the San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity as an educational forerunner in San Antonio’s quest for healthy living and healthy eating; providing their students and the greater San Antonio community with valuable information on how to plant and sustain urban gardens, knowledge on healthy choices, and food legislature.
Highlights from San Antonio School for Inquiry and Creativity’s Food Day events include free seed packets provided by The Dinner Garden that can potentially grow enough produce to sustain a family of four to the five-person symposium panel by the Quarry Farmers and Ranchers Market that will cover aspects of family farming, eating healthy, and the need to support local growers.
Events are Monday (Oct. 24) beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing until 4:30 p.m. Call 210-738-0020 for more details.
