WARNER ROBINS, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - In a little more than a month, Warner Robins will have its first ever food festival, a unique opporunity for what organizers say will allow residents to see what the community has to offer.
"For the last year and a half we've been meeting and talking about what can we do to bring people together with the farmers."
After all off the meetings Jodi Daley has figured it out.
A food festival that allows local growers and producers to showcase their products to residents in Warner Robins.
"People are very concerned about where their food comes from and are more interested in buying local and they want to know their farmer and they want to know their food," Daley said.
Daley, a beginning gardener herself, says she wants to give people the opportunity to see where their food comes from.
The festival will not only showcase food, but also the arts, allowing other vendors to participate.
"We believe that food brings people together. So we said lets showcase the local art, and lets showcase the local music, let's have fun and enjoy each others company," Daley said.
She thinks one of the bigges things she's proud is that some of the proceeds from the festival will go to Wholesome Wave, a non-profit that educates and brings healthy, fresh food to under-served communities.
"It's all volunteer. None of us are getting paid, and we're very excited about doing this and bringing the community together through food and art and music," Daley said.
Daley hopes they'll have some fun in the process.
The festival is on April 26th, for a link for events click here.
