This Monday, October 24th, Unity College will be participating in the inaugural Food Day! Food Day is a nationwide event meant to bring attention to current issues that we face with in this country in regards to: diet related diseases from high fat, high sugar and processed foods, food access and hunger, subsidies to large agribusiness as well as environmental and animal right’s issues associated with factory farming. Food Day is sponsored by The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a non for profit watchdog group that
has led successful fights for food labeling, better nutrition and safer food since 1971.
Several events will be hosted on Food Day throughout the campus that will highlight the issues at
hand. This event is a perfect opportunity to engage students, faculty and community members with dilemmas, that are not only happening nationwide but in our own backyard, with in our food system.
To sum it all up: come out and enjoy a fun filled day with, local foods and community building!
