The Faculty of Food and Agriculture welcomes you to join their 2016 World Food Day celebrations. In keeping with the faculty’s annual tradition of observing World

Food Day, the faculty in collaboration with its four main student societies have teamed up to create a calendar that promises to provide a range of activities on this year’s theme “Climate is Changing, Food and Agriculture Must Too.”

On Wednesday 19th October from 9am-3pm, the Sir Frank Stockdale Building will become a hub of activities as this year’s celebrations get underway. At 9 am on the FFA greens under the salmon tree, the day will begin with a spoken word event which will then be followed by lively debates on the theme of climate change and how it impacts food and agriculture until 1pm.

From 1-3pm, Lecture Room B (FFA B) located at the Sir Frank Stockdale Building will be transformed into a climate change seminar as Dizzanne Billy of the global Climate Tracker Movement gives a presentation on the theme of “Climate is Changing, Food and Agriculture Must Too.”

An Edible Fruit Tree walk beginning at the University’s Student Activity Center (SAC) from 4pm will round off the day’s packed schedule. On this walk, participants will learn about the various edible fruit trees on campus while being treated to fresh milk courtesy the faculty’s field station.

This year the Faculty of Food and Agriculture will be hosting an "Edible Fruit Tree Walk" to familiarize the public on the various edible vegetation on the UWI St. Augustine Campus

The public and students of the University are encouraged to join the Faculty of Food and Agriculture on this day of games, activities and free giveaways. In an interactive twist, the faculty has arranged a white board which can be utilized by anyone willing to write what is on their minds as it relates to the topic of “Climate is Changing, Food and Agriculture Must Too.”
