Nutritional Transparency Initiative Launches at University of Victoria

If it’s true that we are what we eat, it’s important to know what it is that we’re eating! As students on campuses are often making their own choices around the foods they eat for the first time, the Campus Food Systems Project believes that our public institutions have a role to play in Idining_Contest_Landingsupporting those choices to be healthy and informed. Transparency and accessibility of information are an essential foundation to support healthy campus communities.

The Informed Dining Program launched at University of Victoria will help the community make comprehensive choices about the food they purchase on campus by providing detailed nutritional information for all standard menu items served in outlets on campus. The initiative is supported by Healthy Families BC. UVIC is the first public institution to house the program. Watch this video to see what students and staff have to say about this initiative.

Led up by the Office of Sustainability, Campus Food Strategy Group Coordinator- Julie Rempel-  has been hired on as a sustainability research analyst to coordinate the research process in collaboration with key stakeholders and with the support of applied student research.
