The AppalFRESH (Appalachian Food Research for Equity, Sustainability and Health) Collaborative is a new, but growing group of faculty, staff and graduate students at Appalachian State University with a common interest in research, education and engagement related to socially, economically and ecologically viable food systems. This collaborative group has decided to host a community meal with the help of many student groups across campus to gather people around a common, 100-yard continuous table to have a discussions about the importance of a sustainable food system. This includes a food system that is responsible to our environment, healthy and available to everyone. Food has the ability to unite people and sitting around a table together with the Appalachian family and the wider Boone community is a great opportunity for story-telling and discussions that help shift the momentum of our community toward local, equitable food solutions.
