What does the term “organic food” really mean? How is Penn State’s food service working with area farms to bring foods to our tables and boost the local agriculture economy? Where can you eat on campus if you have specific food preferences or allergies?
These and other questions about food at Penn State will be discussed at Food.edu, the ninth Environmental Forum sponsored by Penn State Finance & Business and the Sustainability Institute on Tuesday, November 12 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the HUB-Robeson Alumni Hall at Penn State. Beverage service and healthy treats will be provided. Register below to save your space.
"We hope that participants will learn about Penn State's sustainable campus food and food services initiatives. Additionally, we would like to open up a dialogue on how together Penn State and our community can enhance the sourcing and production of sustainable products and services," says Lisa Wandel, Director of Residential Dining at Penn State. Participants can select two out of the six small group discussions to attend. There will be a panel of Penn State food providers to discuss key aspects from the breakout sessions.
