The team at Real Food OSU was awarded the Plate of the Union grant to put food systems issues on the front burner of the 2016 election. The result was the Presidential Picnic, held this past Tuesday, to which they invited as speaker Tom Colicchio, celebrity chef and host of Bravo’s Top Chef, and co-founder of the political action group, Food Policy Action, as well as food activist, Dara Cooper, an OSU alumna.
The Real Food Challenge was created to “…leverage the power of youth and universities to create a healthy, fair and green food system. Our primary campaign is to shift $1 billion of existing university food budgets away from industrial farms and junk food and towards local/community-based, fair, ecologically sound and humane food sources—what we call “real food”—by 2020.”
Snowville Creamery wholeheartedly supports the vision of The Real Food Challenge, and encourages students and faculty to get involved. Learn more through the links above, and step up to the Challenge!
