PROJECT

Campus Sustainability Plan

DESCRIPTION

Conduct student interviews in order to gather feedback on campus planning documents related to food systems, including: the food section of this year’s revision of the Campus Sustainability Plan, the draft food security plan, etc. Spend time discussing campus food policy with students in one on one and group settings, and build excitement about the Campus Sustainability Plan’s food section and the work of the Food Security Task Force developed through the UC Global Food Initiative. Encourage students to take an active role in the discussion around food policy through developing relationships with the key student groups.
