Why not round out Food Day—a celebration of eating local—with a movie and milkshake? Students were treated to milkshakes made with local Kilby Cream ice cream during a screening of In Organic We Trust in the Goose Nest.
On October 24, 2013, Washington College took part in it’s first Food Day! Food Day is a nationwide celebration of local and sustainable food, with a mission to get more healthy food in schools and on campuses across the country.
Writers’ Union hosted their annual Food in Fiction event at the Lit House on the last day of classes. Members were asked to bring a food or drink inspired by one of their favorite books. This year’s menu featured “Pear the Wild Things Are” punch, Polyjuice Potion (Harry Potter), and chocolate chip cookies (If You Give a Mouse a Cookie). Members were also encouraged to bring one of their favorite books covered in brown paper labeled with the book’s genre and themes for the Mystery Book Exchange.
