Description

This will be a culminating event for the HE 3220, Applied Nutrition for Healthy Living, students, where they can celebrate and demonstrate what they’ve learned in the course to help members of PSU (faculty, staff, students) and the larger community make healthier choices around food. The focus will be on eco-friendly and healthy eating. We will be inviting local vendors (restaurants, stores, local food organizations, and farms) to come and set-up a table that provides samples of local foods, demonstrates ways in which to eat and cook with local foods, and educates the public on the benefits and implementation of a plant-based diet. Other PSU faculty, staff and student groups that are committed to holding a table and helping with this event include Steve Whitman (teaching lecturer, permaculture design), Dr. Brian Eisenhauer (Office of Sustainability), Denise Normandin (Healthy PSU), Common Ground, and the Health & Wellness Club. The Applied Nutrition students will help to organize the event as well as provide educational materials, demonstrations, and experiences around plant-based diets and local foods. The event will be sponsored by the PSU Center for Active Living & Healthy Communities and will take place on December 14th, 2016 from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm in ALLWell North Davis Track. If this event draws a lot of participants and proves to be successful, it could become an annual event where we charge attendees a small fee ($10) for a ticket to the event, making it more financially sustainable.
