This fall, the University of New Hampshire will be participating in the event known as Food Day.  This month long series of activities will work to increase awareness and action for more nutritious and sustainable foods. The event begins on the 21st of September, and ends on October 24th.  For those of you who find it difficult to stay attached to a fixed diet, these events are certainly for you.  Food Day representatives will provide plenty of healthy alternatives and guide you towards a healthier lifestyle.  This is a great chance to understand where your food is coming from, and how to make food more sustainable in the future for all.  

Attending at least one of these events will prove to be beneficial towards your health.  Incorporating a healthy diet in with an active lifestyle will certainly help you maintain health and wellness.  An example of an event being held is Farm Tour being held on September 27th, from 11 AM to 2 PM at Woodman Farm.  There, you will learn more about the foundations and operations of organic gardening and harvesting.  This tour would be a great opportunity for those students looking to broaden their knowledge nutrition. 

While traveling to these different events, participants will have a “passport” which will be stamped at qualified Food Day Events. Participants must get up to 5 stamps to be eligible to enter a raffle for great prizes such as am iPad or a Zip Car membership!

UNH Passport to Food Citizenship and Food Day, can be the start to a new lifestyle, and a healthy one at that!
