2018 Community FEaST (Food Engagement and Story Telling)

Event date: 
Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 4:30pm - 6:00pm

The second annual Community FEaST (Food Engagement and Story Telling) will be held October 16th, 2018.  This event is held around a 100-yard long table on Sanford Mall in the middle of Appalachian's campus. Its purpose is to gather Appalachian students, faculty, staff and the community to eat a simple meal of potato, salad and apple pie and talk about the importance of a sustainable food system from many perspectives through dialogue and story-telling. Here is a video of last year's event.

Please join us for a simple meal with the following three goals:

  1. Build community by encouraging conversation and storytelling
  2. Minimize waste (near-zero waste event!)
  3. Maximize local food sourcing

This event is organized by the AppalFRESH (Appalchian Food Research for Equity, Sustainability and Health) Collaborative, a trans-disciplinary group of faculty, staff and students on Appalachian's campus who share an interest in outreach, education and research related to socially, economically and ecologically viable food systems.
