Food Day is a national grassroots campaign working for sustainable, affordable, healthy, and just food in America.
Join us in celebrating Food Day this Monday on October 24, 2011!
Mizzou will be taking part by hosting two events:
Fair Food Fair
Lower Bengal Lair, Memorial Union
Meet and greet with Mizzou’s students, faculty, and staff working on sustainable food issues. Learn about what’s already happening (did you know 15% of the food in the dining halls is local?!), what can be done to make positive changes, and how to get involved. Plus, enjoy free local produce from Missouri farmers!
FRESH Documentary Screening and Panel Discussion
7pm, Conservation Auditorium, ABNR
FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. E Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet.
Panel to follow FRESH featuring Dr. John Ikerd, root cellar owner Jake Davis, and Tim Gibbons from the Missouri Rural Crisis Center
Think of it as Earth Day for Food
