Mark your calendars because the next two weeks are filled with events for foodies, at-home cooks and, well, anyone who’s hungry for lunch.
• This week, Craft Sushi turns 1, and instead of receiving presents, it’s giving them out. One hundred percent of profits from next week’s sales benefit Lost & Found Grief Center, Ozarks Food Harvest, Boys and Girls Club of Springfield, Rescue One and Isabel’s House.
• With Thanksgiving coming up, many of us are hitting the kitchen to sharpen our stovetop skills, and Springfield Community Garden is here with a workshop to show you how to reduce food waste at home. Its free Zero Waste Cooking! event is next Saturday and shows you how to create broth with veggie scraps, make bread with broth, create pesto with carrot and beet tops and more—plus a quick composting how-to.
• While you’re thinking about food waste, Springfield Environmental Services is back with its Enviro Flick screening event showing Just Eat It for free at the Moxie on November 14. The film is focused on examining and reducing food waste.
• Although it’s not necessarily an event, it is a calendar-worthy announcement. Lucky Tiger Sandwich Co. is now open on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
