Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

General Information

Best Committee *EVER*.
The Food Committee will be planning meals for the 2007 Regional Social Forum to be held in Late June here in London. The goal of the committee is to provide healthy, sustainable and tasty meals for the participants of the RSF over four days (3 breakfasts, 4 lunches, 3 dinners and Snacks x a couple hundred!). To those ends, we will be developing menus, acquiring ingredients and kitchen tools, enlisting help and finally, cooking up some kick-ass meals during the event (then washing dishes ).

Who's Involved?

Organizing Principles

Meals for the 2007 RSF will be organised on the principles of using local, sustainable and organic ingredients, prioritised in the order listed, under the umbrella of being vegetarian with vegan options. To those ends, decisions will be made by Consensus at RSF Food Committee Meetings (With approval from the General Committee where required). We strive to keep the atmosphere of our meetings informal.
