Patsy Watkins, Williamson County’s Families & Consumer Science Agent from UT Extension Services, will be speaking in the meeting room about eating and cooking healthy foods. She will be sharing sample meals and snacks with corresponding recipes.
Officially on Oct. 24, Food Day brings together people from all walks of life to celebrate the food movement when it’s working – when it’s healthy, affordable, just, and sustainable. Food Day is a year-round nationwide celebration of and movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food culminating in a day of action on October 24 every year. The nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest created Food Day and it is supported by a diverse coalition of food movement leaders and citizens. Food Day aims to bring us closer to a food system with “real food” that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it. 2013 is the third annual Food Day celebration.
Come hear Patsy and get inspired to not only cook health on Food Day 2013 but all year round. You can participate in the national campaign online by using the hastags #FoodDay2013 and #LetsGetCooking on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest! There will be a Thunderclap It Twitter even on Oct 24 with @ThunderclapIt thndr.it/19q8OAb.
