Villages NW Event Series: Foodways

Foodways: Community Culture Through Food "Introduction to Millets"
Virtual talk
Thursday, January 26, 2:00 pm
Hosted by Villages NW

We are participating in a new Foodways program, Community Culture Through Food, brought to you by a group of food enthusiasts. We seek to address the cultural and community-building aspects of food traditions through presentations, hands-on classes, tours, and other activities as this new year progresses.
For this first year, Foodways and Community Culture Through Food will use the lens of the four seasons to explore various foods this winter, beginning with grains. Grains have been used for millennia by every culture around the world, a cornerstone of all culinary cultures. Millets are quite prevalent in many other countries, although lesser known in the U.S. To raise support for millets, the United Nations has declared 2023 the International Year of the MilletsOver 6,000 varieties of millets in the world are highly nutritious and can be cultivated in drought conditions, unlike many other grains.

On January 26, the Foodways program is hosting an Introduction to Millets virtual presentation with guest speaker from Idaho, Joni Kindwall-Moore, co-founder of the North American Millets Alliance and owner of Snacktivist Foods. Ms. Kindwall-Moore will address the origin story of millets, why they are important to our diets, their role in the climate crisis and some pro-tips for cooking with them.

We sincerely hope you will join us with your friends and family or your Village
