Kristina from the Garden Club (@CUFSP) has an important announcement about Food Day, which is coming up.
Calling all greenies and foodies alike!
We all know about Earth Day ….. but now there’s a FOOD DAY too! Food
Day 2011 will be held on Monday, October 24th. Campuses, communities,
and people nationwide will be taking part in this historical this day
to and raising awareness about the many global issues surrounding food
(food justice, hunger, environmental issues, animal rights,
nutrition/obesity, etc), and rally for a better food-future.
John Jay will be having their annual local foods meal for lunch on
10/24, from 11am-2pm. We have reserved the John Jay lounge and are
working with dining to reserve tables for green/food oriented groups
to set up some sort of display or workshop to educate about these
various issues. Graduate and Undergraduate groups are invited!!
Please email Kristina (me) at firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP to
reserve a table for your group! If you let her know after 10/16 with a
description of your setup, there may not be another time to get the
table request through to dining – as we are doing a “walk-through” on
10/17 at 2:30pm in John Jay Lounge to go through all the different
groups’ activities. Please come to this if your table will have
anything extra special (like a cooking demo, etc), in order to make
sure that JJ can accommodate your needs/that it is ok with the
administration. This then gives us a week to fix any glitches.
