Welcome to another beautiful day in the neighborhood of prelims and mid-semester self-care! We all hope you are taking care of yourselves this week by fueling with our awesome produce, attending our community events, and engaging with our food justice blogs and conversations!

Recap of Toast-A-Thon!
Thank you to everyone that came out for the Anabel’s x Prisoner Express Toat-A-Thon event on Sunday! We all appreciated the conversations had and look forward to more fun, engaging community-oriented gatherings throughout the semester :)
Food Justice Corner!!
Eating Behind Bars: Food as a Punishment
This week’s Health and Wellness Blog is inspired by Anabel's first event of the semester in collaboration with Prisoner Express. If you are interested in volunteering for Prisoner Express, I encourage you to check out this link or stop by the Durland Alternatives Library next door to Anabel’s at any time.

Full of Crap: The Fertilizer Problem in Our Food Systems
We take for granted the growth and availability of our food, but behind that now well-oiled machine of bounty was the invention of fertilizer by Fritz Haber and Carl Bosch. “Today, nearly 80% of the nitrogen found in human tissues originated from the Haber-Bosch process” (Nature). On top of that, they are estimated to have allowed for, if not saved, the lives of over a billion people from premature death due to starvation (Our World in Data).

Keeping Up With AEM 3385!
This week we focused on discussing what an antiracist world would look like and what we can do to address the root causes of the injustices in Cornell’s food system within small groups.
We want to continue to build upon our mission of inclusion and this starts with opening our smaller in-class conversations up to our dedicated shoppers!! Share your opinions on the topic in this Google Form and your experience will be added to the in-store bulletin board :)
