Got cravings for nutritious, delicious food? Pitt-Greensburg students have founded the first ever Food Club on campus, serving up acai bowls and more. This club is open to any students looking to embrace their foodie side.
Tushaniyaa Balaji, the president of the Food Club, believes the first food event, which took place March 22, was successful. The event was called “Make Your Own Acai Bowl! Night” and offered students free acai bowls.
“Since it was the technical kickoff event for the club, it was a little overwhelming considering how many people showed up in an hour, but it was great,” Balaji said. “Everyone that was there had a good time making their bowls, so that’s enough for me.”
The event allowed students to customize their bowls, including a variety of granola, fresh fruit, chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut flakes, Nutella, peanut butter, and even honey.
According to Medical News Today, acai bowls are packed with antioxidants, can improve cholesterol levels, and can even boost brain function.
The following two events include a 21+ wine tasting and charcuterie night, as well as a pizza competition to end the semester. Although this year’s events are already planned, Balaji wants to remind interested students that the club is open to future event ideas.
“We will take any suggestions into consideration, and people are more than welcome to co-plan if they have an idea they really want to have hosted,” Balaji said.
