“The Story of Bananas” Dinner

On October 24th, Tufts Dining and the Tufts Office of Sustainability teamed up to present “The Story of Bananas” at Dewick Dining Hall. The event focused on educating students on their favorite dining hall item—from farm to plate to compost heap—and was modeled after Annie Leonard’s “The Story of Stuff.” Students were treated to a chocolate dipping bar and five stations that detailed the journey bananas go through before and after they get to our dining centers. If students visited each station, they were entered in a raffle to win a pizza and cupcake party along with other banana-themed prizes.

Story of bananas "passports" were hole-punched after visiting each station.

Student volunteers teach their peers about the transportation and storage of bananas.

Student volunteers were easily identified by their matching "Ask Me About Bananas" t-shirts.
