Coming up: Foodscapes, fundraisers and craft beer

Club hosting food contests

The General Federation of Women's Clubs' St. Petersburg Woman's Club will present two foodscape competitions, a business category open to chefs, caterers, food service professionals and supermarkets from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on July 19, and an individual/family competition from 1 to 5 p.m. on July 20. Foodscapes are "landscapes made completely from food, mostly vegetables," according to event planners, and must fit atop a card table between 32 and 36 square inches. The event is to raise nutrition awareness; proceeds benefit the Mr. Strong Foundation, which helps special-needs families. The events will take place in the clubhouse at 40 Snell Isle Blvd. NE. $3 adults; free for children 12 and younger. Email jbwjbw1@verizon.net; (727) 822-4982.
