Food Day Celebration

A goal of World Food Day is to help end hunger by wasting less, eating right and producing real food. Adopt a more healthy and sustainable diet, and advocate for #ZEROHUNGER. We invite you to celebrate the day and see how we are providing access to foods that help our community grow.

Activities include:

The Food Day Expo is brought to you by the College‘s Food Collaborative, who is dedicated to addressing our student’s basic needs and providing resources for success. This Food Day celebration, like others around the world, help ensure communities have access to food they need, at a cost they can afford and at a rate they can sustain, all while making smart food choices.
