SUNDAY UVI EVENT OBSERVES WORLD FOOD DAY

In observance of World Food Day, which is Saturday, a "Youth Against Hunger" fair will be held Sunday on the St. Croix campus of the University of the Virgin Islands.
The food resources fair is a joint project of the Agriculture Department and UVI's Cooperative Extension Service and Agricultural Experiment Station. After music by Stanley and the Ten Sleepless Knights from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., there will be an opening ceremony, followed by workshops at 2 p.m. on nutrition and health, healthful vegetarian meal preparation, and pumpkin cultivation. All events are free and open to the public.
Other attractions will include a daylong farmers' market of fresh produce, food and drink booths, activities for children, and the collection of non-perishable foods for distribution to the needy. Finishing off the day's events will be performances by the Guardians of Culture Mocko Jumbies, Uprising Cultural Theater/Dance and DJ Dog Heart.
