Events, Food, Supporting MALT

Join Us for #MALTFoodWeek: February 22–26!

February 12, 2021

For thousands of years, communities across the globe have gathered around the table over food and drink. We join together not merely to eat, but to connect, to celebrate and to mourn, to find comfort and nourishment in the sharing of a meal. Such gatherings are somewhat less common these days as we continue to shelter in place, but that doesn’t have to stop us from coming together in the ways that we can. 

We invite you to join our virtual table for #MALTFoodWeek from February 22-26! A week-long celebration of our robust local food system to support MALT-protected farmers and ranchers and, most of all, bring this resilient community together over our shared love for food.

Join your community members, chefs, MALT producers and staff on social media and cook up new and favorite MALT-protected meals throughout the week! Stock up at the farmers’ market or buy directly from MALT producers, fire up your oven, chop your veggies and join us for a week-long celebration of local foods!
