From Becca “grow-your-own” Wilton ’15:
Do you read Jonathan Safran Foer? Are you a vegetarian? Do you still think that most of the meat sold in America comes from little farms owned by grandma and grandpa?
If you answered any of the questions above, you should come to Woodhead Lounge at 12:45 on October 3rd. Jonathan Safran Foer is making a virtual visit to Wesleyan to talk about his book Eating Animals and to lead a discussion about factory farming practices in America. Bring your lunch, it’ll be pretty freakin sweet.
Date: Wednesday, October 3
Time: 12:45-1:20 pm
Place: Woodhead Lounge
Interested in eating local? Maxwell Hellmann ’13 writes in about an exciting new alternative to the existing Fruit and Veggie Co-Op at Wes!
You might have heard rumblings about a student-operated local food co-operative that formed last year. Maybe you didn’t. Last year, after much pressure from students, Bon Appetit agreed to run a pilot program that would bring fresh, seasonal produce from local farms to students’ kitchens (much like a CSA). The program’s success has convinced Bon Appetit that the local co-op is a worthwhile and financially viable venture, and they will be allowing it to grow in size this year!
The co-op will now be offering several different options that can be purchased with points:
- -Veggie share (with some seasonal fruit) : $130
- -Egg share : $55
- -Meat share : $50
- -Non-meat protein substitute share (tofu and seitan from The Bridge) : $50
- -Dairy share (from Ronnybrook!) : $TBA
- -Bread share (from Hartford Bread Co.) : $TBA
- -Value-added share (other local products such as honey, jam, maple syrup, etc.) : $TBA
- **In the works for future semesters: Seafood share
