Students Are Driving Universities Towards Sustainable Food

An initiative called the "Real Food Challenge" is starting to take root at Universities across the country


University students from around the U.S. gathered at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn., last weekend to share ideas about food sustainability and take part in and event staged by the Real Food Challenge, as more and more college students are starting to push their schools to improve food sustainability by committing to the Real Food Challenge’s goal of 20 percent "real food" by 2020.

According to Katie Blanchard, the Real Food Challenge’s Midwest coordinator, nearly 20 schools have already committed to 20 percent "real food" by 2020. To read more, click HERE.
