Weaving A Sustainable Food Web

What's a better way to spend that "awkward time" after dinner this Friday than coming to participate in a community discussion about expanding the local sustainable food system? Carleton College and St. Olaf College are bringing together students, professors, parents, and food activists in an event led by keynote speaker Holly Lasanga of Bates College in her presentation entitled "Weaving A Sustainable Food Web." From students to parents, farmers to educators, we have already done much to improve the nutrition that Northfield's citizens receive. Friday's presentation will serve as another door to increasing the amount of healthy, sustainable food in the community.

The event will begin at 5:30 PM in Carleton's Great Hall. Carleton and St. Olaf students will present their efforts at promoting nutrition in public schools in the area and initiating movements toward real food on our college campuses. Following, Lasanga will share her personal story about coordinating a three-year sustainable food partnership between Bates and other colleges. The event will conclude with group discussions on thoughts about the next steps the community should take to overcome the challenges and bring more real food to Northfield.

This event is free and open to the public. If interested, please RSVP to Soraya Dangor of Growing Up Healthy, at
