Food Day at Babson College
Led by Babson Alum Rachel Greenberger M'11
On October 24, with the rest of the nation, Babson will celebrate Food Day by providing "digestible" entry points into the food debates that matter and catalyzing authentic exchanges between concerned eaters and the food companies that provide for them. People think and act the same way we eat: in bite-sized pieces. So Babson's Food Day is all about practical, tangible ways to think critically and choose actively around food.
