From pizza to sweet ‘taters

When I was in college, back when dinosaurs walked the earth, all I asked about the location of my food was that it be near my hand and not make me pull out a lot of dollars. And the closest thing to an actual recipe in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Daily Tar Heel was a coupon for Pizza Transit Authority. Now, the DTH has a food column written by junior Alex Walters and senior Blair Mikels. In this entry, the pair fail in their attempt to steal sweet potatoes, but eat well anyway.

The column is another sign of increased awareness about food and its sources on area campuses. According to the column, UNC-CH also has a campus garden. And several campuses, including N.C. State University, have on-campus farmers markets.
