CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa's Center for Energy and Environmental Education (CEEE) and the Northern Iowa Food and Farm Partnership (NIFFP) will host its annual harvest dinner at 6 p.m., Monday, Nov. 21, in the UNI Common's Slife Ballroom. NIFFP is a program of the CEEE.

Following the dinner, Brenda Ranum, project coordinator for the Northeast Iowa Food and Fitness Initiative, will discuss her work. The food initiative is one of nine projects supported nationwide by the W.K. Kellog Foundation Food & Community Program, which strives to improve school food systems, increase access to good food and physical activity environments, and fuels the national healthy living movement. Cost for the three-course, locally grown meal is $13 per person, payable in advance.

For reservations or any additional information, contact Andrea Geary, local food program manager at the CEEE, at 319-273-7883 or andrea.geary@uni.edu.
