In celebration of National Food Day 2014, The UCI Global Sustainability Resource Center (GSRC) and Theta Psi, UCI’s on-campus Professional Sustainability Fraternity have collaborated to host various activities throughout the week of the 24th. In effort to address the current crises experienced around the country today regarding food insecurity, we have coordinated the following events;
– The GSRC will partake in week-long tabling on Ring Road (UCI Main Campus) to raise awareness of the current state of our food system, in addition to participating in and collecting our students’ commitment to the ‘Real Food, Just Food’ movement. This will be done by means of the UC System Wide Food Day 2014 Pledge.
– The UCI Community and beyond is invited to attend a free screening of the film, Food Patriots, followed by a panel discussion with members of our community from 5:30-8pm on Thursday, October 23rd in Social Sciences Lab (SSL), room 228. At this screening and panel discussion, students and members of the community will be exposed to the current state of the world concerning food access and our agricultural system while learning how to get involved with this movement.
– Lastly, the GSRC will be hosting an Open House on October 24th in Student Center South, room G460 from 12-2pm. At this time we will engage in an open discussion regarding the state of our food system through conversation and a series of short clips.
