From the Library – Hoopla Huddle Book Discussion Group Will Read Lost Feast in April 2021

Food, though more specifically “Culinary Extinction and the Future of Food,” will be the subject of next month’s Hoopla Huddle Book Discussion Group. That’s because we’ll be reading Lost Feast by Lenore Newman on Monday, April 26, at 6:00 PM:

BOOK DESCRIPTION: Food expert Lenore Newman sets out to look at the history of the foods we have loved to death and what that means for the culinary paths we choose for the future. Whether it’s chasing down the luscious butter of local Icelandic cattle or looking at the impacts of modern industrialized agriculture on the range of food varieties we can put in our shopping carts, Newman’s bright, intelligent gaze finds insight and humor at every turn.

Part culinary romp, part environmental wake-up call, Lost Feast makes a critical contribution to our understanding of food security today. You will never look at what’s on your plate in quite the same way again.

If you’d like to join the discussion, please register for the Hoopla Huddle Book Discussion Group through our Online Calendar. You will receive an email with the login information for the Zoom meeting before the discussion begins.

Lost Feast is now available to download through Hoopla with your library card as an ebook or an audiobook.

Call for Officers & Volunteers

Eagle Heights Neighborhood Association is a 100% volunteer organization. Without the time and effort of our neighbors, we would not exist. Are you able to help make a difference in our community by helping us to promote, organize, and implement activities for our neighborhood?

For the 2021 election, we are seeking nominations for all open positions. If you are interested in running, just send us an email at info@eagle-heights.us with your name, address, position in which you are interested, and one paragraph explaining how you can help!

Open Positions

Officer positions meet approximately monthly for up to one hour. Meeting times are determined based on everyone’s availability.

Interested Volunteers

Do you want to help out, but not interested in attending our monthly board meetings? Let us know you’re an interested volunteer. We’re always looking for a group of neighbors we can ask to help out. This could be distributing fliers, dropping off welcome packets to new residents, checking the PO Box, serving as a collection point for a neighborhood bottle, can, or food drive, or anything else we might need. We have a specific need for:

  1. Communications volunteers – cross posting content from our Facebook group to our website and preparing newsletters.
  2. Someone who regularly goes to the post office who can check our PO Box.
  3. Someone who has experience coordinating fundraisers.
  4. A Yard Sale organizer (if feasible for 2021)
