Good Food For The Common Good…… Good Results

On Wednesday Hope College sponsored a critical issues symposium and the theme for this year was “Good Food For The Common Good.” The school brought in different speakers to talk about the current issue of food. It took place starting Tuesday night and ran through Wednesday afternoon. Classes were cancelled for the day so students could attend different speaker sessions. It was nice to have a day off of classes and enjoy the variety speakers. They had speakers from other universities as well as chefs, hospital representatives, health counselors, and even students from Hope College speak. I personally learned a lot about nutrition that I had never known before, and I was also given a reminder of how fortunate I am to have easy access to good food. Students were challenged about the issue of good food and stimulated thinking drew from hearing the speakers. Following the CIS there is a 30-Hour Famine and a Canned Food Drive that is benefitting the Holland  Rescue Mission. I think that it is great how the college really focuses on the importance of community. Hope is definitely heavily involved with the Holland community!  

Well I hope you all have a fun weekend and enjoy the fall season!
