Keepin it REAL FOOD Week Wrap Up!

Keepin' it REAL FOOD Week! rocked the Davis campus last week. We added over 15 people to our listserv, raffled off several of our cookbooks, and shared some real food loving.

The Dine with Dignity campaign and movie screening was excellent and highly attended. The screening concluded with a live conversation for a member of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers in Florida and great live music.

The Real Food taste-testing went great. Everyone loved the Zucchini and Sesame salad made from fresh zucchini from the student farm.

King Corn was great - especially all the yummy popcorn that was grown on the Student Farm.

There was a rocking solar cooking demo on the West Quad - Katie Cooper and Solarising helped to educate the community on using the power of the sun to cook food!

Finally, Keepin' it REAL FOOD Week wrapped up with a Student Farm get-together where we shared some amazingly REAL food, including several dishes cooked in the solar ovens earlier that day, and a beautifully made-from-scratch cherry pie with Coco Ranch cherries.

Check out some of the pictures from the event below...
