Calling All Terps!
Tomorrow is the day we have been planning for since September! Curious? By now we hope you have seen the promotion for our very first event, The Foodie On Campus Road Trip—First Stop UMD. This truly has been a part of our vision since we first launched the site. We know college students are really interested in food, and they want information quickly! No long articles or lessons - you have enough assigned reading and lectures to sit through.
We have paired up with University of Maryland Dietetics students. Dr. Margaret Udahogora, the Director of the program, put together an awesome team of 9 students to help plan and coordinate this event. We have had a blast working together and we have all learned from the process. Our founder is an alum, so it is particularly significant that our first event is at University of Maryland, her home for several years. Go Terps!
So, what do we have planned? A food fair! We have cooking demos, tastes and samples galore including:
- Siggi’s Yogurt, one of our sponsors, totally awesome, high protein, low sugar Icelandic yogurt.
- A grain salad specially created for us by WeCookUSA, our other sponsor who provide personal chef services.
- Green smoothies created by students that actually tastes good!
- kura smoothie powder.
You’ll walk away with samples of healthy snacks including nuts, dried fruits, smoothie powder, and awesome peanut butters! There will be food, trivia and chances to win prizes including a Nutribullet and a $50 gift card from The Container Store!
