Healthy Flavor Bistro & Garden by A Red Circle
Creator(s): Erica Williams
A Red Circle’s weekly pop-up restaurant Healthy Flavor Bistro & Garden offers community members affordable meals made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The bistro operates under a Pay it Forward method, meaning patrons can pay more to allow others to eat, regardless of their ability to pay. The bistro offers time for community engagement and, on some nights, education. Our next educational talk is on October 26, which will be a Voter Education Workshop on the 2018 midterm ballot initiatives. The following event is November 16, which will teach community members on the dangers of consuming too much sugar. We are using this event to encourage community members to eat healthy during the upcoming holidays. The Bistro provides North County residents with an affordable meal choice, in lieu of a fast food meal.
If A Red Circle receives the community-generated microgrant, we will use it to inform community members about the Bistro and scheduled education events through Facebook, flyers, and website updates, purchase food that we do not grow onsite, and purchase materials necessary to maintain our garden.
