Are you interested in learning more about food programming in libraries? If so, please join us for a webinar with Food Literacy and Library Programming Consultant, Rebecca Antill to learn about the variety of ways that you can incorporate food literacy and knowledge in your library programming. Webinar participants will:

  • Learn about why food literacy is important, and how it is impacting communities
  • Discuss safety aspects to consider when planning food programming
  • Explore kitchen management and labor division with programs
  • Observe different programming formats and cooking ideas
  • Learn about potential partnership organizations and opportunities

At the end of this webinar, MSL is looking for 2 - 5 libraries who are interested in developing food programming at their library, and will provide an opportunity to work more closely with Rebecca after summer 2023. If you have any interest in this topic, please attend!

Presenter Bio: Rebecca Antill has been providing food based programs for libraries and other community organizations for over twenty years, and helped create the statewide food literacy initiative SC Read Eat Grow while working as the Youth Services Consultant for the South Carolina State Library. In 2021 Rebecca enrolled in the Culinary Institute of Charleston to refine her knowledge of cooking and nutrition. Rebecca works for a community supported grocery that keeps almost one million dollars within the local economy each year, and volunteers as a chef instructor for the local food bank. Partnership building and resilient communities are some of the things Rebecca most loves to talk about, along with how to perfectly prepare a lemon yogurt scone.
