2015 DIG DAY!

On Sunday, April 26th, Food, What?! hosted our third annual Alumni reunion, "Dig Day"! Alumni from each of the last 8 years of FoodWhat, came back to the farm and reconnected for a blowout day of farm activity, playing and sharing a meal together.
The first part of the day was filled with excitement, as Alumni began showing up to the farm.

After some initial mingling and snacks, we dove into a couple farm projects. Some folks began digging, raking and composting beds, while another crew got started tearing down the fence where our new FoodWhat outdoor gathering space will be built! 


While much of the crew got their hands dirty in the soil, a few Alumni got busy in the kitchen preparing lunch.


As we finished up on the farm, everyone headed out to the field to circle up and play some games. Doron officially welcomed everyone back, and then it was time for...

ROLL CALL!!!! 
Alumni got with their year for a little photo opp --

Then it was Blob Tag time!


                                                    
After a super fun game of tag, we all made moves back towards the circle bench to participate in an Alumni survey. The surveys offer us at FoodWhat an incredibly valuable opportunity to learn more about what Alumni are up to and gather feedback to create better programs for future FoodWhat youth.


Then it was time for lunch. Tacos! A FoodWhat favorite. Accompanied by fresh squeezed lemonade.


 

 










So great to come together again with our FoodWhat family!! Can't wait til next time. Much love!
