Did you know that nearly 1/3 of food produced globally is wasted? And yet, according to a recent article in Indy Weekly, nearly 1 in 5 North Carolinians is food insecure.
There are a number of organizations, such as Raleigh’s own Interfaith Food Shuttle and Boulder, C.O.’s bike-driven Boulder Food Rescue working to combat issues of food access and distribution. This semester the Campus Farmers’ Market club, along with other committed individuals, hopes to bring a Food Recovery Network chapter to N.C. State! Interested in being a part of making this project happen? Contact us at email@example.com!
Thanks to everyone who came out to our first market! The cookies and NumNum Sauce brightened the grey, cold afternoon.
Yesterday’s market also began the first of a series of demos about food waste – where it comes from, why it’s an issue and what we can do with it. Tristram Stuart does a fantastic job covering the issue and some of its implications in this TED talk. We will be featuring different aspects of food waste issues and solutions at the Campus Farmers’ Market student table throughout the semester.
Come check it out and pick up some veggies, cookies or other goodies next Wednesday!
Come join the Campus Farmers’ Market club at 6 p.m. on Mondays in SAS 1218 beginning Jan. 27! We will be planning for Wednesday markets, discussing trip possibilities and having good fun!
