Sustainable Heights Encourages Residents to Join 'Fresh Mob'

Businesses and organizations are celebrating Local Food Week with a series of events and specials that feature locally-sourced food.

Cleveland Heights has had its fair share of "mobs."

In February, the "Cash Mob," a group of shoppers ready to spend at least $20, hit Coventry's Big Fun. In April, the "Trash Mob" helped clean the streets in the Grant Deming's Forest Hill Historic District. And we're all familiar with flash mobs. 

This week, Sustainable Heights encourages people to join the "Fresh Mob" and eat local during Local Food Week, Oct. 1 through Oct. 6.

Many businesses are preparing daily specials that feature locally-sourced food, and there are several events planned during the week to celebrate.

Participating businesses that have specials include Nighttown, Brennan's Colony, Barle Soup and Sandwich, The Wine Spot and Zagara's Marketplace.

The celebration ends Saturday with a Local Food Festival at Grace Lutheran Church that will include fresh food samples, food preservation and composting workshops, activities for kids and local cook books.
