Real Food Challenge
In February, University of Utah President David Pershing signed the Real Food Campus Commitment—a national challenge that commits the U to changing its food purchasing to include 20 percent “real food” by the year 2020. “Real food” is classified as local, fair, humane, and/or ecologically sound. It was students, working with the U’s Sustainability Office, who drove this commitment to healthier food and food systems. Check out the Salt Lake Magazine article on it here by Sarah Lappe.
