Welcome back y'all!

Last night we had our first meeting of the semester, and my, what a turnout. Home-baked mac and cheese, orzo-veggie salad, lemonade, fish toasts, ants on a log...yum.

We talked about upcoming events/activities:
  • Spring Activities Expo, Tuesday Jan 29th from 2-6pm in Metcalf Hall
  • Expert panel discussion Thursday Feb 28th at 7:30 in KCB 101 (title tbd)
  • Tasting on March 4th or 5th in the Gastronomy demo kitchen
  • Sid Wainer field trip
  • Dinner/lunch/brunch clubs: pick a time and place, then show up!
And signed up for task forces: Publicity, Dining Services, and Group Liaisons. Email us if you'd like to get more involved in any of these areas. (Publicity will deal with making/posting flyers, event promotion, and just spreading the word in general; Dining Services will communicate with the DS reps, learn how DS works, plan DS-SFBU events/special nights/"SFBU-approved" foods, and scout the dining halls; Group Liaisons are our links to other student groups.)

If you're interested in getting even more involved, there are some internships available at Eat Well Guide and the Real Food Challenge. Plus, check out opportunities for farm apprenticeships through ATTRA and NOFA.

In other news...Next meeting: Tuesday February 5th, same place (room 109 @ 808 Comm Ave), same time (7:30 pm), same deal (bring treats).

Hi Slow Food BU!

Thanks for posting the Eat Well Guide externship on your blog. We are so excited to be expanding our program and taking in energy from college students across the US and Canada. We also will have summer interns in our office so keep us in mind if you are in the NYC area then. Email me with any questions (
