World Food Day

World Food Day Student Poster Contest & Gallery Walk in D.C.

United States of America, 25/10/2019 25/10/2019

Slow Food DC is thrilled to participate in the UN Food and Agriculture Organization's celebration of World Food Day! To mark the occasion, we're sending out a call to students for their best artwork for the World Food Day Poster Contest — open to kids aged 5-19.

Students can create a poster that illustrates their idea of what needs to be done to make healthy diets available for everyone and how each of us can improve our own diets. There will be a “gallery walk” of local poster submissions the afternoon of Saturday, October 26, featuring snacks, activities, and information tables led by local and international food organizations. e will take photos of student posters and vote on our local “people’s choice” poster winner! Need poster ideas? Check out the Eating Healthy Matters activity book, available at: http://www.fao.org/publications/card/en/c/CA4694EN/.
