Eat Local Week is in full swing and we are having a blast meeting new neighbors and supporters at participating restaurants and special events! Thank you to all of you who have shown your support for local food so far this week! We are absolutely thrilled to learn that in honor of Eat Local Week, UCF is hosting “Food 4 Thought Week.” While we know there is a lot of work to be done to make more of our food system good, clean and fair, we appreciate that UCF is taking a week to highlight this approach to eating and give the UCF student and staff community a way to participate on campus!
Check them out online for a series of special events, including a panel discussion on local food, a local luncheon in one of the dining halls, presentations by Slow Food speakers, film screenings, and much more! Thank you to Eden Wetherell, Sustainability Coordinator at UCF Dining Services, for putting such an exciting week together!
