MONROE - The Stirring the Pot series of chef demonstrations, local food sampling and discussion initiated last year by Green County UW Extension will continue through the summer with the addition of a new partner, the Rural Life Office of Catholic Charities.

This year, events will be held indoors throughout the county to serve a more diverse group of people. The events bring together local area chefs, food growers, culinary instructors, nutrition experts, UW Extension Master Gardeners and Master Food Preservationists, and local consumers. Special kids' activities planned.

The dates and sites for the events are:

• 4:30 to 7 p.m. Sunday, June 27, United Methodist Church, 2227 W. 4th St., Monroe

• 4:30 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 22, St. Francis Assisi Catholic Church, 338 S. Harrison St., Belleville

• 4 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17, Congregational United Church of Christ, 201 E. 23rd St., Brodhead

The three Stirring the Pot events include food sampling and chef-led demonstrations featuring a public dialogue on the value of supporting local producers, building community by eating together and healthy habits for better lives.
