Enjoy and support local food at this Friday FoodCon VIII at the Harrison Center from 6 – 9 p.m.

FoodCon uses creativity to raise awareness in Indianapolis food sustainability
Vendors will be in the Harrison Center Gymnasium with products for sale and/or engaging demonstrations, with an emphasis on encouraging people to adopt more sustainable practices in daily life at home.
In 2010, the Harrison Center partnered with Indiana Humanities to create the first FoodCon, an unconventional convention celebrating the art and culture of food in Indiana. Local businesses and individuals manned booths and shared information with attendees on subjects ranging from hydroponics to raising goats and chickens. Now in its eighth year, the Harrison Center has partnered with many organizations, including the Center for Urban Ecology at Butler University, Basic Needs, Simple Solutions, and 2018 event sponsor, Big Green.
Jason Thomas, Indy Gourmet Club & Urban AG Indy, demonstrates how to prepare both kimchi and kombucha, both foods with a long list of health benefits.
