UCSC Dining's Farm Fridays
UCSC Dining has introduced a new way to recognize and appreciate the local farms and farmers that supply fresh produce to student diners. "Farm Fridays" feature produce from one of the many local farms—including the UCSC Farm—in new menu selections, and a chance to chat with students from UCSC's Farm Systems Working Group, who work throughout the year to educate students about food systems issues. See the UCSC Dining website for additional details and a schedule of upcoming Farm Fridays, along with Healthy Mondays.
