Local Food Fair and Farm to School Week in Review

If you weren't able to make it to Dining's Healthy Bites/Farm to School celebration (at Runk, Newcomb, and O'Hill) or the Fine Arts Cafe Local Foods Fair last Wednesday evening, here are some pictures to recap the events:

Lots of people were stopping by the FAC!

And chatting with our vendors - here, Lisa from the Local Food Hub speaks with a student about the local apples and apple cider that they source from area farms

Lisa prepares more apple samples

Students from the Global Sustainability class organized this Food Show

Did you know that the Fine Arts Cafe now stocks single serving sized Farm at Red Hill hummus containers? 

The student organizers put together a display about the merits of local food

Twin Oaks had an info table with delicious samples, and a display featuring the basic tofu ingredients: water and (US-grown) soybeans

The Healthy Bites/Farm to School Week crudites bar at Newcomb

Local green beans, green peppers, apples, celery, broccoli, cauliflower, and apple cider

The cider was a big hit
Don't forget, whenever you attend events like this, be sure to share your feedback with me or dining@virginia.edu.  Hearing positive comments after the fact really helps to reinforce our commitment to sustainability!
