This past weekend, to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a group of students from the University of Washington Bothell campus came to 21 Acres to work through ways to effect positive change in food systems. They looked critically at: opportunities to help the campus improve food service, including how to source locally produced food; they examined GMO issues and how to be informed consumers; and they talked about farm workers and the importance of being aware of all people and components that are involved in getting food from the farm to the plate. We’re very appreciative of the UW’s commitment to supporting students through their Annual Day of Service to honor MLK. All of us at 21 Acres look forward to being an ongoing resource as the campus moves towards more sustainable food sourcing and a greater understanding of food justice issues.
