Big Red Eats Green

The 2014 Big Red Eats Green (BREG) fall food festival and farmers' market is right around the corner! Join us at the Art Museum on Wednesday, September 10th from 11a.m. to 3p.m. This festival will feature local growers and restaurants who are committed to sustainable practices, as well as campus and community organizations that are working to improve the food system every day. Entertainment is provided by local musicians and artists. Themester art exhibits will be open to the public, and a guided tour will start at 1:30pm. Also featured is a Themester lecture inside the museum at 12:15pm

The mission of BREG is to increase awareness of the benefits of eating local, emphasize the availability of local food, especially for students at IU, and support the local food community. Come and try some local food, enjoy live music and art, and get involved in your local food community!
