A group of enterprising Health and Society students have launched the DCU Food Society with the aim of finding innovative and interesting ways to incorporate healthy eating into a busy student life. Their ambitious plan for the first year includes a monthly cooking session and a monthly Foodie Movie Night showing food documentaries and serving alternative snacks (for members only).
However, the main attraction this semester is open to all. It’s a Street Food Fest at the end of October, in collaboration with the Urban Arts Society. An exciting array of food events are planned with a distinctively international twist – lots of new delights to try out! An Instagram competition will take place in early December for “the most alternative Christmas dinner” with the winner getting a free restaurant trip. Again this is open to all of us!
An inter-societal masterchef competition is one of the highlights of next semester with a focus on creative ways to make simple dishes on a tight budget. A pot-luck street party event is also in the mix. Sounds like lot of fun with yummy food too.
