SPH Students Create Healthy Recipe Book in Honor of National Food Day

SPH's Childhood Obesity from a Public Health Perspective Class, is excited to announce their participation in National Food Day by creating a Healthy Eating Recipe Book, in which they offered taste-testing throughout the SPH community and a healthy food donation to a local pantry.

On October 24, 2012, the University at Albany’s School of Public Health’s HPM 531 Childhood Obesity from a Public Health Perspective class took part in Food Day 2012. Food Day 2012 is a “nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food,” (www.foodday.org). Hundreds of universities from across the country organized events for this day. The HPM 531 students decided on three projects to participate in Food Day 2012: a healthy food donation to a local food pantry; a healthy recipe book for the SPH community; and a healthy taste-testing with recipes from the recipe book for the SPH community on October 24th. The recipe book was well-received by the SPH community, and many SPH faculty, staff, and students participated in the taste-testing event. By all accounts, it was a successful event at the SPH, and there was widespread encouragement to participate in future Food Day events.
