Food Day

FLC PISO
October 06, 2011

Learn how to make healthier food choices!

Learn how to make healthier food choices!

Folsom Lake College will celebrate Food Day on Monday, October 24, from 10am-2pm, with a variety of activities and features in the Falcon's Roost on the Folsom campus (click here for a map). Food Day will be highlighted by a special menu in the Roost cafeteria, interactive displays, and a wide variety of nutritional information.

Food Day is a national event that seeks to bring together Americans from all walks of life - parents, teachers, and students; health professionals, community organizers, and local officials; chefs, school lunch providers, and eaters of all stripes - to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way.

Folsom Lake College will celebrate in a number of ways, starting with sustainable, healthy choices in the cafeteria. Nutrition students will provide additional information about the day's menu, including recipe analysis and how far the food traveled to arrive at FLC.

Also available at Food Day will be information about local farmer's markets, to encourage students and the entire community to buy food locally. The college will also provide information on ways people can support sustainability in their food choices.

To top it off, there will be a number of interactive exhibits for visitors to check out.
