USU celebrating National Food Day with demonstrations, lecture by noted author

Utah State University is celebrating Food Day on Monday, October 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Taggart Student Center. Food Day is a nationwide campaign to change the way people eat and think about food. Organized by the Center for Science in Public Interest, Food Day encourages Americans to sponsor or participate in activities that support healthy, affordable and sustainable food. The celebration at USU includes a lecture by Anne Vileisis, a USU alum and author of “Kitchen Literacy: How We Lost Knowledge of Where Food Comes From and Why We Need to Get it Back.” There will also be displays from local farmers and vendors about sustainable foods, hourly food demonstrations and a cook-off involving top on-campus chefs, courtesy of USU Dining Services. Approximately 30 local businesses are participating in the event.
