CELEBRATE NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH – MARCH 1 – MARCH 31
National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education and information campaign created each March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This campaign focuses on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits.
During National Nutrition Month, be sure to pick up a punch card at any Dining Services location. Once you receive 10 punches for buying Bear Balance meals or entrees, you can turn the card in to be entered into a drawing for dinner at Ibby’s for four people, or a special Chef’s Table event in the Studio 40 Kitchen for you and 6 of your friends.
You can enter multiple times and you will receive a new card once you reach 10 hole punches. Ask a Dining Services cashier for a card or for more information. Help us celebrate NATIONAL NUTRITION MONTH with Bear Balance meals and items.
DINE WITH A DIETITIAN – Our Dining with the Dietitian program provides an educational experience and a healthy meal with campus chefs and Director of University Nutrition Connie Diekman in the campus experiential learning kitchen, Studio40. Visit Sumers Rec for more information about these classes.
COOKING CLASSES – In collaboration with Sumers Rec Center, we celebrate global diversity by offering cooking classes featuring cuisine from around the world! Italian, Vietnamese, Spanish, Indian and Cuban cuisine will be featured in this series of cooking classes. Each class runs from 6:00pm-8:00pm in the Village Kitchen. Sign up for these classes through Sumers Rec, but hurry because space is limited.
POP-UP KITCHEN: Pop-up restaurants are temporary restaurants that often operate from a private space, industrial areas, during festivals, and in the case of Washington University, nearly anywhere on campus. With our PopUp Kitchen events, we literally bring the kitchen to you!
Nutrition is the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. Understanding the basics of nutrition can help you know that what you eat can help you feel your best and enjoy all aspects of college life. Since dietary habits and needs can vary greatly, we provide a variety of cuisines and options for students with dietary limitations, all of which are supported by evidence-based science.
