Did you know faculty and staff can purchase meal points to be used at any of the 15 Cal Dining locations? What better time to experience a meal in the dining halls and what it means to eat local than Food Day!
Day seeks to bring together Americans from all walks of
life—parents, teachers, and students; health professionals,
community organizers, and local officials; chefs, school lunch providers,
and eaters of all stripes—to push for healthy, affordable food
produced in a sustainable, humane way. We will work with people around
the country to create thousands of events in homes, schools, churches,
farmers markets, city halls, and state capitals. The Center for Science
in the Public Interest is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. As
an organization, they decided to celebrate by launching what they hope
will become an annual event that is both a celebration of real, healthy
food—and a powerful, grassroots movement for change.
