Cooking up Community Happy Hour: Holiday Edition! Dec 11th from 5:30-7 pm @BUILD Pizzeria!

Cooking up Community @ BUILD! Hi Everyone!
 
In the spirit of keeping the good cheer going, mark your calendars for the December Cooking Up Community Happy Hour: Join Public Health Nutrition next Wednesday, 12/11 from 6-7 pm at BUILD Pizzeria to celebrate a successful semester!
 
Supporting the SF/Marin Food Banks – During this holiday season, we will be partnering the SF/Marin Food Bank. Each $1 donated translates to $6 worth of food for Bay Area families, and we are working to make sure a portion of proceeds from our Happy Hour can be donated. We will also have a PHN page available for online donations at BUILD.

Every Second or Third Wednesday of each month, we will be gathering together to relax and wind down at BUILD Pizzeria on Shattuck!! 10% of all proceeds will be donated to an organization of our choice each month! 
 
Why BUILD Pizzeria? Because they have a secret Cal student menu on Wednesdays with specials like $1 glasses of Prosecco, $7 pizzas (gluten free options available), and specialty themed cocktails (just for us)! 

Please invite any students in Public Health (and beyond) who may want to join us (or that I may have missed)! Here’s the Facebook Invite: Cooking up Community @BUILD!

Cooking up Community’s first potluck of 2013!

Cooking up Community had a great start this year!  Our group gathered together to share food and wine at our first annual potluck.  We had a variety of delicious, homemade snacks, and all had the opportunity to hang out outside of the classroom environment. All who couldn’t attend were missed!

Special thanks to the 5-year old Beata, one of our classmate’s daughters, who took this picture for us!

Cooking up Community Volunteers at Hoes Down Harvest Festival! 

Full Belly Farm is a certified organic farm located in the beautiful Capay Valley of northern California. This year, 5 students in Cooking up Community volunteered at their annual Hoes Down Harvest Festival. The Hoes Down Harvest Festival is dedicated to honoring and promoting the knowledge of agricultural arts and sustainable rural living through inspiration and education. Due to our participation this year, a percent of the proceeds went to supporting the work done by the Community Alliance with Family Farmers. 

We hopped in the car, packed our camping gear, and drove to Guinda, California Friday after we finished our classes. Once we got to the farm, we met many farmers, nutrition advocates, and food policy folks currently doing great work in the Bay Area!

We even met some cute farm friends:

Piglets from Full Belly Farm's Harvest Festival in Guinda, CA, where members from Cooking Up Community volunteered.
