The Campus Food Systems Project is building the student movement to get more local, sustainable food onto university campuses in Canada. Launched in October 2011, the Campus Food Systems Project is working with nine campuses across the country to help students improve the multi-stakeholder organizing, procurement practices, and applied student research for the food systems on their campuses and in their regions. The resources used, best practices developed, and lessons learned from these campuses will be shared on StudentFood.ca to inspire and support change on campuses nationwide.
This project is run in partnership with Sierra Youth Coalition and Meal Exchange. Together, Sierra Youth Coalition and Meal Exchange each have over 10 years of experience bringing students, faculty and administration together on university campuses to deliver social justice and environmental programs. The partnership of our organizations on this initiative is supported by three years of funding from the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation.
The Campus Food Systems Project is being coordinated by Caitlin Colson at Meal Exchange (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Sarah Archibald at Sierra Youth Coalition (email@example.com).
