Wondering how to mark Food Day today? Two schools have scheduled events in conjunction with the annual celebration of healthy, affordable food, which now unfolds in cities nationwide:
At the MUSC Urban Farm, which last year hosted one of 3200 Food Day events across the U.S, the 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. party’s all about the sweet potato. In addition to self-guided tours of the farm at the corner of Bee and President streets, the agenda includes a 11:30 a.m. talk on a new sweet potato breed; a 12 noon cooking demo and a 12:40 p.m. sweet potato head contest starring local celebrities, including the Post & Courier‘s own David Quick. All events are free.
And at the College of Charleston, students, faculty and staff members are invited to the campus’ Liberty Fresh Food Company for an all-local lunch; the menu includes zucchini sliders and turnip chips.
