Hey Everyone!

Last night's meeting involved girls, carrot cake, and a live cow butchering. Sort of.

Here's the lowdown on our upcoming panel:

Slow Food BU presents
The Foodie's Dilemma: How Boston's Cheapskates Can Eat Sustainably

Thursday, February 28th 7:30 pm
Kenmore Classroom Building (565 Commonwealth Avenue), Room 101

The word is out: industrially-produced food just isn't that good for your body, the environment, and your conscience. But it's not easy to eat all that delicious, local, sustainably-produced food while trying balance your meager student budget and braving a cold winter in the city. So why bother? These foodie-experts will discuss the merits and difficulties of eating ethically:

The event is free for BU students, faculty, and staff; it is also open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5 (proceeds go to Slow Food BU).

Partially funded by your Undergraduate Student Fee!
