SAN LUIS OBISPO — More than 200 Cal Poly students celebrated Food Day with STRIDE and the Real Food Collaborative in October, learning about food policies and tasting free samples from local farms and eateries. This was the first campuswide event for Food Day, a National celebration designed to encourage Americans to examine food policies and food-related issues.

STRIDE and Real Food Collaborative organized the event on Dexter Lawn, which included live music, speakers and booths from local clubs and organizations. Speakers included Sarah Ramirez, executive director of Foodlink; Hunter Frances, director of the Cal Poly Center for Sustainability; Que Dang, coordinator of the Cal Poly Cross Cultural Centers; and Susan Singley, program manager for GLEAN SLO.

Students from all over campus came together to participate in food-related discussions and to celebrate food. Hopefully this will be the beginning of many years of engagement in the Food Day movement.
