The local outpost of the Slow Food movement is going to be holding a bruschetta festival at the Columbia Farmer’s Market in a couple of weeks. They need volunteers and I can’t think of a better way to spend a late-summer’s morning than chopping fresh tomatoes and grilling crusty bread (I hope they use Uprise Bakery‘s inimitable batard).

Volunteers needed for heirloom tomato bruschetta festival
Hello again, food enthusiasts!
Slow Food Katy Trail needs a few good volunteers to help make and serve bruschette at our annual Heirloom Tomato Bruschetta Festival on Aug. 23 at the Columbia Farmers Market. It’s the fifth year for this popular fundraising event for our Slow Food chapter.
If you didn’t get to volunteer for the farmers’ market salsa-making event in July, here’s another opportunity to help. Of course, if you did help make salsa and had a great time, we’d love to have you back for this!
Slow Food volunteers will be working from 8 until noon that day. We’ll need help setting up; grilling bread; chopping basil, tomatoes and garlic; assembling the bruschette; and serving.
If you are interested in helping out for an hour or two, please send us a note.
Even if you can’t help, we hope to see you at the festival!
