The Palm Oil Initiative is a group of students and faculty united under the drive to educate the public on palm oil, an ingredient found in a significant portion of food and toiletry items which carries with it a slew of personal health, human rights, and environmental costs. Food Day at the University of Arizona offers an opportunity to ask students questions about what they’re eating. We will be offering information regarding foods that contain palm oil, some alternative food items, as well as interactive games that will allow consumers to be aware. Informational posters will be provided including topics such as endangered species, human rights, personal health, and climate change!
Come join us at the UA Food Day on Wednesday, October 23rd from 10am-2pm on the University of Arizona's Mall near the student union!!
