Foodstock's Message? To Hell with the Mega Quarry!

While it didn’t get the press of the 1000 people that showed up at Occupy Bay Street, Foodstock was an amazing success. An estimated 30,000 people showed up just outside Honeywood, Ontario, to protest the development of a mega quarry and eat some damn delicious food. A minimum ten dollar donation got you free samples from notable chefs like Micheal Stadtlander, Jamie Kennedy and Grey County’s own, Shawn Adler. Musicians Jim Cuddy, Hayden, Sarah Harmer and Romney Getty helped concentrate the main message of the event: We don’t want no stinking Mega Quarry here!
Perhaps the best news from the event is Stadtländer contends Foodstock may become an annual event to encourage social involvement. He has hinted that a larger event may be in the works for next spring. Bring it on! I’ll bring my appetite!
