March is National Nutrition Month!

Contributed by Julie Whitten on 03/02/2007 

March is National Nutrition Month; to celebrate Ithaca College Dining Services is hosting several events to keep your mind, body, and soul healthy and happy!

On March 7, 2007, the kick-off for National Nutrition Month will be held in the Terrace Dining Hall during dinner. This dinner will have a focus on healthy eating with nutritional information about portion control and portion distortion. Special healthy snacks will include an assortment of fruit and cheeses. In addition, win prizes by playing nutritional quiz games and register to win a certificate for a free massage!

On March 20, 2007, the Sustainable Lunch will be held in Towers Dining Hall from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. The special menu will include: organic vegetable soup, organic apple cinnamon and poppy seed muffins, and The Fresh Food Market organic selection of grilled open faced vegetable pesto and mozzarella sandwiches.

This lunch will also feature The IC Sustainability Initiative, and will demonstrate an interactive exercise from EarthCafé 2050, including Ecological Footprinting developed by students in an Environmental Studies capstone course. The “ecological footprint” illustrates the human impact on the environment by acknowledging how many earths would be required if everyone in 2050 lived at your current standard of living.

The first twenty-five people will also receive a recyclable coffee mug and certificates for a free pedometer. The mugs are good for a fifteen cent discount on coffee, tea, and fountain drinks at all retail locations. As well, samples of Guayaki Yerba Mate will also be available.

On Tuesday, March 27, 2007, Giant Hoagie Night will take place in all dining halls for dinner. Join us for healthy and delicious hoagies of all kinds.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, especially in a college setting is an essential quality that many students are forced overlook because of busy schedules. Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate being healthy!

Ithaca College Dining Services offers a variety of services including residential and retail dining. For more information regarding Ithaca College Dining Services explore our website at www.ithaca.edu/dining.
