OCT 26: WORLD FOOD DAY student poster contest and celebration!

Slow Food DC welcomes student artwork for the FAO Poster Contest — open to kids aged 5-19. The idea is for students to create a poster that illustrates their idea of what needs to be done to make healthy diets available for everyone and how each of us can improve our diets. SFDC is hosting a “gallery walk” of local poster submissions on the afternoon of Saturday, October 26 that will feature snacks, activities, and info tables led by local and international food organizations. The gathering is FREE and will take place at Busboys and Poets’ Anacostia location. We will take photos of student posters and vote on our local “people’s choice” winner!

Need poster ideas? Check out the Eating Healthy Matters activity book, available online.

Many thanks to our partners and supporters: Slow Food USA, DC’s Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE), The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Busboys and Poets, DC Urban Garden Network, and FreshFarm.
