Family-Friendly Events in August with AdkAction & Carriage House Cooking School

Ever wonder what to do with kohlrabi? What about an overabundance of brussels sprouts or farm fresh tomatoes?

Join AdkAction and Chef Curtiss Hemm of the Carriage House Cooking School in-person, at the Farmacy in downtown Keeseville, New York from 5:30-7:30 pm on August 3rd & 18th for two great, family-friendly cooking events!

Chef Curtiss will discuss, explore, and explain meal planning tips and demonstrate simple recipes to maximize the flavor and nutritional value of your CSA shares — that’s local food directly from North Country farmers!

Participants can get involved and ask questions about meal planning, what to do with an unknown veggie, or other cooking-related questions to stump Chef Curtiss.

Sign up today by emailing info@adkaction.org. Enrollment is limited with priority for AdkAction’s Fair Food Pricing participants. 

But don’t worry – both events will be live streamed on AdkAction’s Facebook page. Sign up for the August 3rd and August 18th events to tune in on Facebook Live, or to watch the recordings later on from the comfort of your own kitchen.

August 3rd & 18th
5:30-7:30 pm
The Farmacy, 1730 Front Street, Keeseville, NY

This event series is part of AdkAction’s ongoing Food Security Program efforts — these include Fair Food Pricing, the Farmacy, and Emergency Food Packages.


Fair Food for All

If you live in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, or Hamilton County, New York, you may qualify for AdkAction’s Fair Food Pricing Program to receive food from local farms delivered to your door at 30% off regular prices. These can include prepared meals and fresh ingredients, all from vendors at Hub on the Hill in Essex, New York.

To see if you qualify, or for more information on the program, check out the eligibility guidelines and fill out an enrollment form today.


Eat Local for Less at Farmers Markets

The Fair Food Pricing program is expanding with new options to make local food affordable and accessible, including low-cost or free farm share. And this summer, you can catch AdkAction at your local Farmers Market!

AdkAction will be at both the Saranac Lake Farmers Market (Saturdays) and the Lake Placid Farmers Market (Wednesdays). Visitors can sign up for Fair Food Pricing, use your SNAP EBT cards to get tokens that can be used at the market, swap a full compost bucket for an empty one, and even pick up some free wildflower seeds to grow your own pollinator habitat!
