Food in Harmony: Benefit for Local Foods Connection 9/25 @ The Mill

Every so often, an event comes up that seems to epitomize what I think Little Village is all about, and this benefit Saturday night is one such.

Food In Harmony is a fundraising event for the organization Local Foods Connection, which is a volunteer organization that connects low-income families with locally grown, healthy food.

Performing at the event will be Skye Carrasco–Iowa City’s only psychedelic violinist singer songwriter, Mary Mo & Her Sweet Notes–bringing the funk from Cedar Falls (no, really!), Sam Knutson — of Shame Train (and a Mill sound guy!), Douglas Kramer Nye–up-and-coming Roots shouter, and Lady Espina–Iowa City’s premiere DJ Diva, rocking the turntables until they turn on the bright lights.

More information here. Suffice it to say this is going to be local, fresh, and awesome.
