Food for Thought: 'UCSB Eats Real' on National Food Day

Today, Oct. 24, across the U.S., it’s Food Day, and its organizers say “It’s time to eat real, America!” We’re all for any event that celebrates eating. UCSB did its part to mark the day with its “UCSB Eats Real” event, held outside the Student Resource Building.

Food Day organizers are encouraging you to ask Congress to support the campaign’s goals, which include reducing diet-related disease by promoting safe, healthy foods; supporting sustainable farms; and promoting good health by curbing junk-food marketing to kids.

Life of the Party @ UCSB promoted its campaign, “Keep it local,” for Halloween. They say 95% of citations issued during Halloween time are to out-of-towners. By keeping the celebration local, they hope to keep it safe.  They were handing out fliers listing safety tips and information for UCSB and Isla Vista community members. For more information, visit the Associated Students Halloween website at www.as.ucsb.edu/halloween.
