Shannon Courtney & Shannon Mader
Shannon Courtney and Shannon Mader are co-coordinators of M.E.A.L (Meet, Eat and Learn). The MEAL team represents a group of passionate eaters that believe the responsibility for developing a sustainable, local food system in PEI rests not just with food producers, but also with all eaters.
In 2011, the team organized and hosted two MEALS. Each MEAL was hosted at the Farm Centre, open to the public and free of charge. Guests were treated to delectable samples of food donated by generous Island producers and prepared by Island chefs. The evening also featured presentations by food folk and opportunities for everyone to mingle. The response to both MEALS was extremely positive and the MEAL team looks forward to dishing up more events in the near future.
