The Real Food Challenge is a tool available for university students to bring local and sustainable food to their schools.
The Real Food campaign is run by students nationwide asking schools to pledge to increase their commitment to "real" food on their campuses. The site offers all the resources and support you need to start a campaign at your school, including step by step information about how to initiate change.
Students campaigning with the help of the Real Food Challenge have already secured pledges of over $50 million worth of dining budgets from 19 universities since 2008.
What makes the Real Food Challenge especially powerful is that as individuals committed to sustainable eating, the impact we can make is still limited by the size of our budgets, but by banding together and asking a university to support that commitment, we effect much greater change.
