Food Justice Month

Students wait in line at the Green Truck during a Food Justice Month event

October is Food Justice Month!

Food Justice Month is a collaboration between many departments and clubs on campus to highlight the plight and rights of workers throughout the Food Chain. Come get involved with food in your community, and make sure not to miss the Harvest Fest Quad Fair on October 24th, when there will be tables on the Academic quad from FEAST, Campus Dining, the Green Bean and more.

This month long celebration of, and effort towards, Food Justice will feature food-related events and workshops, off-campus trips to forums, special sustainability theme meals in the Marketplace, a Food Justice quad fair (October 24th ) and more!

Check back soon for updates on events, and make sure to mark your calendars, so you can come join us for all of them! The calendar will be updated as more information/events become available.
