As October winds down, we have a fun new class to mention for November and a number of great events to attend. The Garden and Produce Club, a student-led organization at Vermilion Community College, will be teaching a monthly cooking class at EFS on various topics based on what produce is available. First on the list are chocolate beet brownies. (Note: this program is not a collaboration with nor sponsored by the Ely Food Shelf). 

Give to the Max Day is coming up on November 18. This year we are throwing an Avocado & Margarita Night for folks that donate to the Ely Folk School during GTMD21. Our goal is to raise $2,500 – a contribution of $100 goes a long way! More details TBA about this exclusive appreciation event with rare Caribbean style avocados.
