Exploring “Good Foods”

Do you have a passion for food?  Are you “hungry” for internship and work opportunities in the field?  Sounds like you need a taste of Good Food Jobs, a gastro-job search tool, designed to link people looking for meaningful food work with businesses that need their energy, enthusiasm, and intellect.

Good Food Jobs post opportunities with farmers and food artisans, policy makers and purveyors, retailers and restaurateurs, economists, ecologists, and more.  Their  blog, the gastrognomes, profile food professionals and publish their stories to inspire you.

3rd Annual Charlotte Area Farm Tour

If you are interested in local NC foods, be sure to attend the 3rd Annual Charlotte Area Farm Tour, this coming Saturday and Sunday, September 17 & 18, 2011.  Tickets are available for $25.00 per vehicle before the event via online or at one of the local business listed on the website such as Ben & Jerry’s or The Bradford Store in Davidson.  Price is $30.00 on the day of the tour at the participating farms.   I will be there Sunday exploring a few of the local farms.  Check next week’s blog for an update of my farm tour experience.   Lots of career opportunities to “plow” through, too.
