Real Food Challenge meeting
September 28, 2016
We are a recently chartered org in pursuit of food justice here at Smith! The Real Food Challenge is a national student movement that aims to shift one billion dollars by 2020 towards "real food." Real food means food that is local/community based, fair, ecologically sound, and humane. Smith is planning to sign a commitment to real food this fall, but there is still much more work to be done! Facilitating the signing, actions, coalitions, and this important shift in Smith's dining are just a few of the plans we have for the year. Snacks will be provided.
