From the top down, the UA promotes healthy and sustainable living. That's why we are celebrating with a giant Food Day fair on Wednesday, October 14th. We hope that this showcase event motivates and inspires us all to do even more to improve food on our campus and in our Tucson community.
The University of Arizona (UA) Food Day Fair brings together UA and Tucson community groups to host interactive exhibits, and provides educational experiences with food demonstrations, taste tests, and a picnic on the Mall. Want more details on the UA Food Day Fair? Visit us at www.UAFoodDay.com.
The goal of the Castleberry Cares Health & Community Resource Fair is to provide a variety of exhibits designed to help our neighbors connect with the many health, safety, social service programs, and providers located in our surrounding community.
Castleberry Cares will be open to all adults and children within the surrounding Castleberry ISD community. Attendees do not need to have a child enrolled in the district to take part in this event.

This year, Pittsburgh will join the movement when the Pittsburgh Food Policy
Council (PFPC) hosts a youth-led day of celebration and action. The PFPC
convenes over 70 food-related organizations and institutions across our city and
region to build a food system that benefits our communities, our economy and
our environment in ways that are equitable and sustainable. A circle of 10-20
Pittsburgh Youth Ambassadors will work with PFPC to design the day that will
combine community visits, a food growing volunteer opportunity, with a youth
roundtable on food policy, capped off with a community celebration and
Harvest Party at a local urban farm. This event will serve as a catalyst for youth
leadership in food policy in Pittsburgh.
We are in the very early stages of planning this event. If you're an organization interested in partnering, please contact us!
Dia de los Verdes is a celebration of living sustainably. Of remembering to cherish what we have lost and to teach each other how to preserve what we have. Of celebrating through art, music, movement, food, community and ceremony. Traditionally, Dia de los Muertos is a day to remember loved ones through celebration and creativity. Dia de los Verdes aspires to bring you a day to remember and celebrate our planet and all the gifts that she provides. We will have altars created by local artists and organizations, music, food, yoga and fun workshops. Farm tours and local community group activities will be set within the garden for all to enjoy.
Please RSVP on Green Long Beach! Facebook save-the-date at: https://www.facebook.com/events/1441944499440745/
