About the Real Food Challenge at SFSU:
"The mission of the Real Food Challenge (RFC) is to harness the power of youth and universities to build a healthy, fair, and green food economy. By 2020, we aim to shift $1 billion of annual college food purchases [or 20% of the budget] away from industrial agriculture towards local, sustainable, and fair sources. RFC also seeks to provide education and advocate for opportunities to connect communities with real food.
Real Food Challenge at San Francisco State University (SFSU) chapter is an organization with the goal of promoting awareness among SFSU students and people in the greater Bay Area about the importance of “real” food. “Real” food is local, organic, humane, fair, and ecologically sound. Through student outreach and activism, we also seek to educate people about the environmental, social, and economic benefits of growing and consuming “real” food. With the support of SFSU administrators, faculty, students, and its vendors, we hope to achieve 20% real food by 2020 at SFSU.
Most recently our group was involved with campaigning against pouring rights with several other campus and off-campus organizations and received NATIONAL and local media coverage from publications like Forbes, SF Chronicle, SF Examiner, and Associated Press. Due to our success, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors awarded us with a Certificate of Honor for our hard work!"
