Celebrate FOOD DAY 2015 with Bondir
Every October 24th, thousands of FOOD DAY events take place around the country, organized by food activists “united by a vision of food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment.”
Our goal at Bondir is to always use the best ingredients possible to present honest, flavorful food that showcases the pastoral and marine bounty of our New England region. We source our ingredients from a network of food purveyors whose goals are to steward the environment.
