If you missed Taste of Easton-Redding’s Soup & Stews Festival event in January, members of the popular Facebook page devoted to food are hosting an Appetizers & Desserts get together on May 7 from 1 to 3 p.m at the Easton Public Library.
The community event is open and free to all. Participants can bring their favorite appetizers or desserts. The event will feature a table of Ukrainian desserts to honor Easton’s sister city alliance with Sviatohirsk in Ukraine and will accept donations for the city. Easton recently partnered with the war-town city through a sister city program with Ukraine Aid International.
Sal Giardina and Sheila Lincoln Papps started the Taste of Easton & Redding Facebook page last year as a way to bring community members in both towns together through a shared love of food. The page has amassed nearly 900 members who share recipes and pictures of meals that they have made.
To sign up for the May event, email Giardina at email@example.com or Lincoln Papps at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information visit the Taste of Easton & Redding’s Facebook page.
Participants are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the event to benefit the Thomas Merton Center in Bridgeport.
