Montana State University's third annual Local Food Bazaar, which is held to celebrate local foods and raise awareness about the plethora of agricultural products available in Montana, is set for 1-3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 10, in the Strand Union Building Ballrooms.

Everyone is invited to come and meet local producers, sample Montana-made food items, and meet students, faculty and staff who are involved in creating a sustainable MSU campus. The event also includes the premiere of a new documentary by Jaime Jelenchick about MSU's Towne's Harvest Garden and, following the bazaar, a panel discussion about local food. Information about initiatives at MSU regarding sustainability and local food systems will also be available.

The event is co-sponsored by MSU's Friends of Local Foods and University Food Service. Since parking on campus is limited, event organizers encourage people attending the bazaar to use the Streamline Bus.
