Various: Real Food Challenge seeks Grassroots & Regional Leaders

13 Apr

Background

The Real Food Challenge (RFC) is a national campaign that recruits, trains, and supports student leaders working to build a healthy, just and sustainable food system.  Our flagship goal is to redirect $1 billion of existing college and university food purchases to “real” food—food that’s fair, ecologically sound, humane, and local and community-based—over the next 10 years. We work toward this goal, and the broader goal of supporting a vibrant student food movement, by uniting college students through on-campus organizing, leadership training institutes, and regional summits.

2011 is a really exciting year for us. The number of students and schools developing powerful sustainable food projects have grown exponentially since our launch in 2008. To better support each other we are unrolling the Grassroots Leaders Program, which will provide campus-based student leaders resources, training, and support to help them carry out successful campaigns for real food. At the same time, we are planning to publicly release the Real Food Calculator, a tool we developed to help students assess their schools’ real food purchases and set a new standard for transparency in the food industry.

Applications are now being accepted for our Regional Field Organizers and *NEW* Grassroots Leaders Project.  Continue reading
