Hooray for food

We’re tired of food being short-changed, and we think it’s about time it gets recognized for once. Our mayor agrees.

Mayor Don Ness declares today Duluth Food Day at the University of Minnesota Duluth.

In recognition of national Food Day, the mayor will present an official proclamation at 11:30 a.m. in the UMD Plaza Food Court. It recognizes the campus and community goals toward healthier, sustainable living.

Other events include a viewing of “Fresh Part 2” from noon to 12:45 p.m. in the UMD garden room; a farm-to-table dinner at Chester Creek Cafe/At Sara’s Table; and a talk on the importance of nutrition as it relates to cancer by Essentia Health’s Dr. Steven Kuross, from 7-8 p.m. in the Kirby Ballroom at UMD.
