Earth Day 2010!


Earth Day April 22nd 2010 was an AWESOME day. Students, faculty and the community gathered to celebrate Mama Earth!! The sunny and beautiful weather was accompanied by cool music and the chatter and excitement of everyone gathering together. We set up shop next to Food for Thought and immediately starting unpacking the Organic Fair Trade Chocolate from Theo, which drew in a crowd. Some were brave enough to try the Spicy Chili flavored dark chocolate. The ultimate goal of Earth Day was and still is to get as many people as we can to sign our petition to get good, clean and fair food on campus. We want good tasting, nutritional, and local food delivered to the University of Rhode Island. Are you with us? Hey, if you are a vegetarian this means there will be more food available than salad and cereal!! We will take this process one step at a time…show URI Dining that there IS a demand for good food! If you missed us on Earth Day and support our petition and want to sign it then email us at uri@slowfoodusa.org. Better yet, if you want to be in our club and help us defeat the fake chicken being served on campus then let us know at uri@slowfoodusa.org and we will add you to the mailing list. Happy rest of Earth Week and STAY GREEN!
