Tufts Dining and Tufts Office of Sustainability present “The Story of Bananas,” a cradle to grave look into bananas modeled off of Annie Leonard’s educational series The Story of Stuff. Since bananas are the most popular fruit taken from Tufts’ dining halls and eaten globally, Dining and the OOS seek to educate the student base on the path of this particular fruit from farm to plate to compost heap. There will be five table displays, a foodie educational game (check off the different stations) with banana-themed prizes, and the gamut of banana-containing foods for dinner!
Posters and informational displays will be set up around Dewick MacPhie Dining Center throughout October 24th. Activities and official festivities, including a chocolate banana-dipping station and interactive game, will occur at dinnertime from 5-8pm.
