What does food mean to you? Our daily food choices are complicated and deeply personal. From health to hunger, farmworker issues to animal rights, sustainable farms to local and organic food, we want to know what you think about when you fill your plate.

In celebration of National Food Day on October 24, Sustainable Duke is hosting a Food Day Photo Contest. Students, faculty and staff are invited to submit a photo and a caption describing what food means to them. Entries must be submitted on the Sustainable Duke Facebook page or by e-mailing

Entries will be accepted through Friday, October 12.  Voting will take place in an official album on the Sustainable Duke Facebook from October 15 to Noon on October 19.

The winning photo will receive two "foodie" prizes: a ticket to the seated outdoor Food Day dinner at Duke on October 24 at 5 p.m. and free registration to a Duke Campus Farm workshop.
