Real Food Challenge to Host National Campus Food Day

Digest Only

The Real Food Challenge (RFC) is partnering with the Center for Science in the Public Interest to plan the first-ever Food Day across campuses nationwide. The event aims to bring attention to the issues of obesity, supporting sustainable farming and making real food available to everyone. On Food Day, RFC will launch its GET REAL! Campaign, an effort to get every school in the nation to sign its "Real Food Campus Commitment." The commitment will work to ensure healthy food, fair working conditions, transparency and a $1 billion dollar shift of existing campus food budgets to fair, local and sustainable farms and food businesses. RFC is seeking students, staff and faculty members to be campus coordinators for the event. Coordinators will receive support, help and advice from the RFC office and each individual campus event will be recognized during Food Day. Go to for more information.
