GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - As UF students make their way back to campus Monday, they can participate in an all-day event welcoming them back.

The UF New Student & Family Programs will take place at the Reitz Union starting at 10 a.m.

Students and families must pre-register for the event to ensure proper social distancing.

On Tuesday, the Gainesville city commission will discuss possible solutions to develop a “local food system action plan.”

The goal of the project would be to address hunger in the community and encourage more local food growth.

Some of the proposed projects are to work more closely with UF IFAS Honey Bee Research and Extension Lab, allow small-scale mobile farm stands, and adopt a good food purchasing program.

On Thursday, Florida Gateway College will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil its new multi-purpose facility.

The new building will be home to correction officer training programs and summer camps.
