Q. I’m a student who’s interested in the local foods movement on campus – how can I get involved?

A. Here are a few ways you can get involved:

  • Join the Campus Garden listserv to keep up on food-related issues
  • Attend the regular work hours in the campus garden
  • Join the Dining Commission and channel the voice of the student body to our campus food service provider
  • Volunteer with Campus Kitchen
  • Educate yourself about the environmental, social, and economic issues surrounding food systems
  • Vote with your dollars: ask where the food you’re eating comes from and make dining decisions based on the values that are important to you.
