Community FEaST

Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018

4:30 - 6 p.m.

Sanford Mall

This collaborative group will host a second annual community meal with the help of many student groups across campus to gather people around a common, 100-yard continuous table to have discussions about the importance of a sustainable food system. This includes a food system that is responsible to the environment, healthy and available to everyone. Food has the ability to unite people and sitting around a table together with the Appalachian family and the wider Boone community is a great opportunity for story-telling and discussions that help shift the momentum of our community toward local, equitable food solutions.This event is free and anyone is welcome to attend. Your "ticket" is your own plate, utensil and filled water bottle to help make this a near-zero waste event.
