Vote for the Hungry Village in the Ten by Twenty Challenge

President Daniels’ Ten by Twenty aims to reach ten university-wide goals by the year 2020. The theme for this year’s Ten by Twenty Challenge is one university, aiming to advance collaboration in all areas across the university. Our own Traci Lambert and Phil Rizzo, research program assistants in the division of General Internal Medicine, have submitted an idea they call the Hungry Village.

The Hungry Village team, with the help of Hungry Harvest, a local organization on a mission to fight food waste and end hunger in the U.S., would like to establish an outdoor fair centered on nutrition, education, research and service. The goal of the Hungry Village is to bring a healthy lifestyle to the JHU campus by creating a safe place for the Baltimore community to engage in physical activity and health promotion. Some highlights would include:

  • Outdoor fitness classes
  • A fresh farmers market
  • Health screenings and immunizations
  • CPR classes led by local EMS and fire departments
  • Hands-on cooking demonstrations
  • Community service and volunteer opportunities

Voting and submissions are open to all Johns Hopkins University students, faculty and staff until April 21, 2015. For more information about the Hungry Village, see their submission here. To see all submissions and vote for your favorite visit:
