This Week at Anabel's! (11/16)
Final Weeks of Anabel's, Food Drives, and New Produce!
Welcome back to another week of Anabel’s! Can you believe there’s only a month left of this semester? Anabel’s will be open one final week before thanksgiving (this week). After thanksgiving, we will have one or two more weeks of operation before we’ll officially close the store for the much-anticipated break!
We’re gearing into the winter season, so Anabel’s will be stocking fall and winter produce over the next few months, along with an assortment of new pre-prepared goods! We’ve got pears, rainbow carrots, cauliflower, sage, and a variety of root vegetables! Plenty more items will be placed on the Anabel’s shelf over the week, so come visit us from 2-6PM on Wednesday and Thursday, and 12-6PM on Friday! We can’t wait to see you there!
Food Drive this Week!! Since Thanksgiving is a holiday centered around celebrating food with family and friends, we want to help those who may be facing food insecurity this holiday season. A box will be kept in Anabel’s for people to drop off their donations, and all collections will be donated to Friendship Donations Network of Ithaca, a local hunger relief organization. Please bring peanut butter, granola bars, cereal (low in sugar), kid-friendly healthy snacks, nuts, beans, lentils, brown rice, raisins and other dried fruit, pasta, crackers, and canned fruits and vegetables to Anabel’s this week when shopping or dropping off compost. Thank you!
Join the Food Justice Coalition Group Chat!
Want to tune in to the food justice movement on campus?
The Anabel's Collaboration and Education Committee is working on making a big group chat that includes students from a wide variety of campus organizations whose work is related to or intersects with food justice. The FJC strives to lay the foundation for solidarity, support, and cross-disciplinary collaboration between everyone affected by and engaged with food. This initiative was started by Anabel's last year with support of the Regenerative Agriculture and Food Security Collective, and we're trying to recreate it for a new year with active students! Food justice is a fundamentally intersectional issue, so people involved in any kind of social or environmental justice work on campus are encouraged to join.

Event of the Week:
Thank you for coming to our movie night last Friday screening “Gather”! Indigenous food sovereignty and food ways have historical and current significance worth exploring more. The Friday after Thanksgiving, November 26th, is also Native American Heritage Day. Check out the hour-long film on Netflix if you missed it :)
Food Recovery Network Needs DRIVERS!!!
