Partners in Health and Wholeness is organizing a statewide Flash Mob on October 24 at 12:05 p.m. There is no single set location for this Flash Mob, which is celebrating Food Day, a national event. Local communities will decide their site. Food Day is a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.
I’m asking people all over North Carolina to organize groups wherever they are, within their school, work place, church, streets, a common area in a town, etc. to perform a synchronized dance (the choreography is available here). If you need a letter to help support asking permission to hold the event in a public place, please contact me. In addition, please videotape it to be uploaded and viewed to reflect participation. Please start the process of organizing people, choosing a location and “registering” so I can share where folks can join in. Several locations can be chosen within one city to make celebrating Food Day accessible to anyone. The choreography of the dance is simple enough so that a non-dancer can learn, and we are seeking participants of all ages and abilities. Youth groups within the state are helping to choreograph this project.
Please consider joining the NC Food Day Flash Mob. Answers to frequently asked questions can be found here and our story of coming up with the choreography is here. For more information about registering, please contact Joy Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-357-8625. And if you have not already signed a pledge to be healthier, please consider doing so here.
