Arif Shaikh is a Camden resident, an entrepreneur and food lover.

He is the founder of foodslack.com – a platform that connects local farmers to buyers. He is working with farms, co-ops, and restaurants to make it easier and faster to source local produce. Arif is currently focused on midcoast Maine, and hopes to expand to the rest of the country.

He also loves to cook and shares his passion with the community. He runs the informal “Camden Curry (top secret) Club”, sharing his recipes, cooking techniques, and curries with the community. Arif’s curries combine spices from his Indian heritage with vegetables and herbs grown right here in Maine.

On February 14th, we’ll learn about Arif’s healthy obsession with food through his social and business entrepreneurship. And we’ll get to sample his curries and chai. If we’re lucky, he might let us into his top secret curry club!

Registration is required. There will be a light meal of vegetarian curry and chai. $5 per person.
