Food Day

Project Sweetie Pie Booth at Food Day Gathering
Food Day Booth
I participated in Food Day yesterday morning at the University of Minnesota, volunteering at the Project Sweetie Pie booth.  It was great to see about 20 other food and healthy living booths.

The goals of Food Day are as follows:
Robert Jones (lf), Senior Vice President for System
Academic Administration and Michael Chaney (rt),
Founder Project Sweetie Pie

1.  Reduce diet related disease by promoting safe, healthy foods.
2.  Support sustainable farms and limit subsidies to big agribusiness
3.  Expand access to food and alleviate hunger
4.  Protect the environment and animals by reforming factory farms
5.  Promote healthy by curbing junk-food marketing to kids
6.  Support fair conditions for food and farm workers

Among the many booths there was Making it Better, a community initiative that brings people together to discover and share stories that inspire healthy everyday choices wherever they live, work, learn or play.  They are currently taking challenge submissions for community efforts that fit their mission. Project Sweetie Pie is among the entrants.
