Check it out THIS WEEK- The Omnivore’s Dilemma… the play

The Omnivore’s Dilemma
Based on the book by Michael Pollan
Written, Conceived, and Directed by Natsu Onoda Power

Professor Natsu Onoda Power (Madness & Civilization, Trees and Ghosts) once again brings her singular vision
as an adapter, director and designer to transform a powerful non-fiction text into an unconventional and memorable performative event. This ensemble-based stage adaptation of Michael Pollan’s best-selling book moves from the corn fields of Iowa, to a small organic farm in Virginia, to America’s dinner tables, grocery stores, and fast-food emporiums. The production engages the question: “What should we have for dinner?” — a quandary which Pollan says has confronted us since man discovered fire, and the answer to which may well determine our very survival as a species.

GW students win $10,000 award for campus food co-op in downtown Washington, DC!

A co-op that sells locally grown food wins the inaugural Knapp Fellowship for Entrepreneurial Service-Learning award at GW’s 2011 Service-Learning Symposium April 26.

Thank You Supporters and Friends!

First, thank you times 1 million for all of your undying support in the idea of having a cooperative cafe on campus. All of you have big hearts, creative minds, and unparalleled passion for food sovereignty. If you haven’t read GWToday yet, read it here and you will learn that our cooperative initiative has been awarded $10,000 through the Steven and Diane Knapp Fellowship. This is huge, just sayin. Basically, this humble idea of ours has been recognized by GW as a promising and desirable addition to campus and for that we must be thankful! and also give ourselves a huge pat on the back for being awesome.

So much has happened since January when we started this journey and it will continue to grow, change, and evolve in the coming months. If any of you are going to be here over the summer and would like to get in on some of the negotiations for space, organizational structure, suppliers, inventories, fund-raising–we’ll take any spare time you have. If not, let us know if you would like to do any work remotely! If nothing else, keep checking the website for updates and we look forward to all of your continued support in the Fall.

With localized food and cooperative enterprise growing in popularity more each year, plus rising student interest in all things green, GWSFC possesses real power to help students lead a sustainable transformation of food culture at GW. But don’t just take our word for it!

Listen to the testimonies of experts speaking about CoFed, the group helping to make this idea a reality:

“Colleges around the country are figuring out that they educate their students three times a day about either good food or bad–about a world where local matters, or where food is just a plate full of calories to get you through class. CoFed has the potential to be a crucial part of that process.” Bill McKibben, Author and Co-Founder of 350.org

“CoFed is powerful. It will train a new generation of leaders with experience creating good, clean, fair food businesses. It also supports a new generation of eaters who believe in the power of community to create their own food choices – choices that nourish their bodies, their values, and their planet.” - Josh Viertel, President, Slow Food USA

“I applaud the efforts of CoFed, which has emerged as a courageous and vital organization for empowering young adults with the information they need to know about food, health and the planet.” – Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, editor of NaturalNews.com
