WesFresh put on a great event on Saturday to celebrate the university’s commitment to increase “real food” at Wesleyan to 20% by 2020. The CFA Courtyard was filled with brightly-clothed earth lovers swaying to the bike-powered concert on stage, courtesy of the College of the Environment’s bike generator (run by 10 bikers biking in place the whole time). A very-proud-of-Wesleyan President Michael Roth was bopping to the music and beaming at everything around him. And how could he not be proud? Weskids did all of this!

REAL FOOD REAL WES COMMITMENT CELEBRATION
From Becca “champ” Wilton ’15:
WesFRESH (Wesleyan Students for Real Ethical Sustainable Habits) invites you to celebrate the signing of the Real Food Challenge Campus Commitment!
The Real Food Challenge Campus Commitment is a contract that will be signed by President Michael Roth and Dining Director Michael Strumpf to increase real food at Wesleyan to 20% by 2020. Real food is food that is local and community-based, ecologically sound, fair to humans and ethical for animals.
In honor of this historic event in Wesleyan’s history and to celebrate Earth Week, there will be speakers, the signing of the commitment, and a picnic-style meal with food grown at local farm Urban Oaks and other sustainable farms.
