Building a Strong Local Foods Program for Your Campus

Event Type:


December 13, 2017 3:00pm to 4:00pm



Food systems have become an increasingly important element of campus sustainability efforts and planning, with varying levels of commitment and institutionalization across campuses. This topic has a variety of focus areas within it, including food systems in the curriculum, student organizing and advocacy around the Real Food Challenge or other food initiatives, campus farms, and local purchasing for the dining hall. This webinar will offer stories and tips from students, chefs, dining directors, administrators, and non-profit staff who are advancing sustainable food systems on their campuses and in their regions. The practitioners will speak to their successes and lessons learned, and leave you with ideas that you can take back to your own campus.

This webinar is hosted by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
