ORGANIC WINE & FOOD FAIR
Healthy - Local - Sustainable
Join Grape Crush Productions, community leaders and local businesses for Atlanta's inaugural
Organic Wine & Food Fair in honor of Food Day - a nationwide celebration and movement towards more healthy, affordable, sustainable food! The event will be held at the Trees Atlanta Kendada Center, a LEED Platinum Certified community resource full of sustainable features.
The event honors locals who have made a significant impact on the sustainable food movement.
TREES ATLANTA KENDADA CENTER
MEET OUR HONOREES
The Junior League of Atlanta was organized 96 years ago, with just 45 members. Today, the JLA is the third largest Junior League in the world with a membership numbering nearly 4,000 members. This year, Junior League of Atlanta will contribute more than 75,000 volunteer hours, valued at nearly $2 million dollars, along with $250,000 in grant funding to its community partners that support its mission to improve the lives of women and children in Atlanta.
Is organic really better? Some people buy organic for the taste, some for the enviroment and others for their health. Meet reps from Georgia Organics, a member supported, non-profit organization connecting organic food from Georgia farms to Georgia families to find out the real deal with eating local organic food!
Enter-to-Wine: Explore the world of organic wines at your very own home or office soiree.
That's right, we're bringing the tasting room to YOU!
Organic Wine & Food Fair guests will have the chance to win a private organic wine tasting party for their friends or colleagues valued at $500.00 courtesy of Grape Crush Productions.
PARKING: There is limited parking at the Trees Atlanta Kendeda Center itself. Additional parking is available along some of the neighborhood streets, including Chester Avenue, Fulton Terrace, and Harold Avenue. Please be mindful of signs letting you know whether parking is available only on one side of the street, as is the case with Chester Avenue near the Trees Atlanta Kendeda Center. Overflow parking may be available in the vacant lot at the northwest corner of Memorial Drive and Chester Avenue. You will see signage indicating whether parking is available in this lot.

GCP is the creator and producer of Atlanta Food & Wine Month, Buckhead Wine Festival, Chefs in the City, Inside the Cellar and the all-new Organic Wine & Food Fair. The next sip is yours... Cheers!
ORGANIC WINE GUIDE
Whether you’re a self-professed oenophile or just enjoy an occasional glass of red table wine with dinner, navigating the labels of wines that purport to be eco-friendly can be confusing: “100-percent organic,” “made with organic ingredients,” “natural” or “vegan-friendly.” Don't give up on finding a greener glass of wine, click here for Earth911’s guide to wines that aim to please your palate and seek to reduce their impact on the planet.

OLIVE OIL TASTING
Savor the flavors of fresh premium extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars sourced from around the world at the Organic Wine & Food Fair.

DID YOU KNOW?
Food Day, created by CSPI, is powered by a diverse coalition of food movement leaders, organizations, and people from all walks of life.
