Event ReviewPosted: March 1, 2012
Well, that whole thing was a bust. Apparently, the Occupy Our Food Supply folks screwed up. There was no event. I got to the supposed site of the event, which turned out to be the headquarters of Local Matters, and was greeted by an inquisitive look from a woman sitting at a long wooden table, whose name turned out to be Noreen. Noreen asked, “Can I help you?” I told her I was there for the Occupy Our Food Supply event, and received a blank stare in response. From an adjacent room came Cole, a young, spunky lady, the graphic designer and marketing manager of Local Matters. We briefly discussed the mix-up, with her telling me that they supported Occupy Our Food Supply, and it was determined that the organization had simply assumed that Local Matters would be hosting an event.
All was not lost, I did connect with Cole and Noreen. I’ll look forward to working with Local Matters in the future, and fostering the relationship with this important organizaiton.
