All are invited to the 4th Annual 100 Mile Meal

In the context of other national and local Food Day events, undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff and Baltimore community members are invited to celebrate the signing of the Real Food Campus Commitment by President Ron Daniels during the 4th annual 100 Mile Meal.

The 100 Mile Meal will feature an all-local (sourced from within 100 miles) and sustainable meal cooked entirely by members of Real Food Hopkins. By signing the Real Food Campus Commitment, President Daniels will add the Homewood campus of Johns Hopkins to the growing list of universities around America that have pledged to purchase at least 20% “real” food (defined as local/community-based, ecologically-grown, humanely raised, and fair trade) by 2020.

After dinner, a guest panel will discuss how the Real Food Campus Commitment will impact consumers of campus food, food service workers, and local producers.

Food will be sourced from the Blue Jay’s Perch Community Garden and other local producers. Poultry, vegetarian and vegan options will be available.

For off-campus visitors, please see for information about construction and parking
