Food Day Festival Announcement 2016

Food Day Festival


Get ready for the fifth annual Lawrence Food Day Festival on Thursday, October 20th, from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. in the Big Gym. This year’s theme, “Toward a Greener Diet”, emphasizes fresh, nutritious and delicious foods, as well as the many choices we can make to eat sustainably and improve food policy.

The annual highlight is the student recipe contest. Help your child(ren) compete for great food prizes, sharing their favorite (pre-prepared) savory vegetable-based dishes; the festival crowd votes to determine the winners.

If you are interested in staging a table or other activities around recycling, waste reduction, nutrition, or sustainable food production, contact us at! There are plenty of ways to participate, big and small.

Email us your favorite tips and tricks for saving energy, water, and food to enter a raffle and get a chance to win beautiful handmade pottery from Fire Opal.

Let’s get GREEN!
