Food, food, food and more food!

Two weeks without saying a word… this is just not on, especially when there is so much going on!

So, here is something that might interest your artistic minds: the Food GRP (i.e. Global Research Programme, one of the key subjects the university decided to prioritise in its research, who wouldn’t??!!) is launching a photo competition. The theme is… food, of course and you can send an image of food in any way (it doesn’t have to be something you cooked earlier, it may be related to the coop, diets, food production, impact of food production, etc.).

‘You’ in this case refers to Warwick students… so I’m out… but you might have a chance of winning this incredibly prestigious competition. Get snappin’!

And if food is not your thing, but you like taking pictures anyway, maybe you’ll be interested in this other photo competition going on: the International Development GRP Photo Competition. Get snappin’ twice!

Loads of news today about food too with the Guardian (yes, I know…) talking about people caught skipping, about supermarkets joining to publicise waste and Tristram Stuart writing a review of Farmageddon: The True Cost of Cheap Meat by Philip Lymbery.

Last but not least, the Disco Soup @ Warwick is confirmed for the 20th February 2014 (12-3pm) at the piazza on main campus. Come along, we’ll need your help to cook and peel and dance and sing and debate!
