What is the 100 Mile Meal?
Marshall’s Student Association of Nutrition and Dietetics is partnering with Dining Services, the Sustainability Department, and a number of other area organizations, to host our 4th Annual 100 Mile Meal on October 26th in Towers Marketplace from 4PM-7PM. (2014 success photos).
Food for this dinner will be primarily sourced within 100 miles of Marshall University, helping to support our area farmers and to create a more stable, sustainable economy.
Eating fresh, locally raised foods is a great way to help improve your health, empower farmers, and strengthen your community.
What is the FoodDay.org project?
Food Day (www.foodday.org) is a nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable and sustainably produce foods, and a grassroots campaign for better food policies. Food Day builds all year long, culminating on October 24th. Food Day is an opportunity to support better local, state and federal food and nutrition policies, educate the public about healthy and sustainable diets, and push for change in the American food system.
Last year, universities across the country played a major role in making the campaign an overwhelming success. Over 300 universities organized Food Day events from campus farmers markets to lectures and debates on a range of food issues.
