Annual Picnic July 26

The Bethlehem Food Co-op will hold its annual summer picnic on Sunday, July 26 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Monocacy Park on Illicks Mill Road in Bethlehem. The event is free and open to the general public.

Hamburgers and veggie burgers will be provided by the Co-Op, and local café Jumbars will be donating some sweet treats. Guests are asked to bring along a side dish, beverage, or dessert to share. Beer or wine is permitted in single-serving, non-breakable containers.

The picnic will feature several fun, interactive stations that promote the Co-Op’s education mission:

  • Pollinator Station: In support of the group’s upcoming film screening of “Queen of the Sun,” guests can make a bee home to either take home or donate to the Co-Op to sell or raffle at the movie screening. Tickets for the film screening (August 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ice House on Sand Island) will be available at the event.
  • Local Coffee: Monocacy Coffee Co., a new local roaster, will provide samples and brewing demonstrations.
  • Dilly Beans: Joe Klinkhoff will demonstrate how to use lacto-fermentation to make dilly beans (pickled green beans that are commonly used in Bloody Mary drinks)
  • Co-Op Info: Guests will be able to learn about cooperative enterprise, Bethlehem Food Co-Op Development, purchase limited edition colors of the Co-Op tshirt, and become a member-owner!

RSVP for the picnic here!
