Winter Fancy Foods Show

LOCKED DISCUSSION

Anyone going along to this show?

It starts next Sunday (18th)

It looks huuuuge

  1. I called http://www.underoneroof.org/home.shtml, the organization which has managed the Fancy Foods Show leftovers sale in the past. They're not doing it this year. But they are having a big furniture sale on the 23rd.

    Hope they start up the leftovers sale again next year.

      This year the food, some 100,000 pounds, is being donated to food banks in Solano County, according to Vacaville's The Reporter, http://www.thereporter.com/news/ci_11... . There's still a need for volunteers to help bag up the food for distribution. Want to volunteer? Call 425-9673.

        Here's the follow-up story on the give-away. More than 20,000 bags were distributed.

    2. I'll probably go. I've gone in the past and it is huge.

        1. I've been, it's huge - there is some great stuff - lots of cheeses. There is also a lot of crap - bread mixes, chocolate covered pretzels, etc... Don't go with more than one person or you will have trouble making it through all the booths - don't try to stop at everything. Have fun!
