Whether you’re a student, a friend, a brother or a sister, everyone on this planet is sure to have one thing in common- we all have to eat. Beyond simply filling our stomachs, food brings us together. Though the type of food, how it is prepared and where it is grown may differ, the pivotal role that food plays is the same in every culture. We are on a mission to ensure that students across the globe have access to the resources necessary to inform, engage and mobilize themselves and their community about the importance of sustainable food. Through powerful campaigns, inspiring programs and innovative resources, students will have the opportunity to lead the charge for change on their campuses. When we take the time to appreciate real food, we take the time to recognize just how important food is for the environment and for ourselves. Just remember; food is love, food is life, and food is truly our future.
