“Sharing food together is one of the core initiatives of the group, as it helps to keep us grounded and reminded of the reasons we are doing so much work to educate the student body on the food system,” says Joy Kostansek, president of the student organization called Food Matters at Ohio University.

“We want everyone to see how vibrant and accessible healthy and homemade food can be!” she adds.

The students recently held another potluck, one of the group’s favorite events to host, bringing together students and community members to share a vibrant and homemade meal.
