No Impact Week - Food Day

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Food Day of No Impact Week focuses on sustainable food choices. Did you know that the typical American meal travels 1,500 miles from farm to plate? Cut those 'food miles' and associated fossil fuel costs by shopping at our Campus Farmers Market today - 10-1 in the UNION BALLROOM (location changed due to the threat of rain)!

Remember: free No Impact Week t-shirts will be available to the first 40+ registered participants at each event while supplies last, and registration will enter you for a chance to win sustainable prizes!

Here are the events of Food Day
