Real Food Hopkins, one of the main student groups behind the founding of this garden, would like to invite you to our biggest event of the year – the 3rd Annual 100 Mile Meal.
This year’s theme is FOOD MYTHBUSTERS
Plenty for the Planet: Sustainable Food and a Well-Fed World
This event, part of the celebration leading up to the second annual Food Day (http://foodday.org/), will take place on Saturday, October 20th, starting at 4:30 pm. In addition to an all-local (from within 100 miles) delicious meal, the event will feature the local premier of a new animated film illustrating how sustainable food systems can feed the world by bestselling author and sustainable food advocate Anna Lappe.
The 100 Mile Meal is open to undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff, and other interested community members. We hope to connect members of the Johns Hopkins community and surrounding Baltimore area to those who want to institute tangible changes in the food system.
Food will be sourced from the Blue Jay’s Perch community garden and other local producers. Poultry, vegetarian, and vegan options will be available.

*REAL FOOD HOPKINS is a student-run chapter of the national Real Food Challenge movement (www.realfoodchallenge.org) that is committed to bringing local, sustainable, humane, and fair food to the Johns Hopkins campus and the surrounding Baltimore area through organizing food advocacy and awareness events, cooperating with the larger food movement, maintaining a sustainable campus garden, promoting community-based learning about food and where it comes from, and donating fresh produce acquired to organizations that feed the local hungry.

On October 24, 2012—and on the days and weeks before and after—thousands of Americans will gather in schools, college campuses, farmers markets, City Halls, and state capitals to talk about what’s right and wrong with our diets and whole food system and how to fix them.
