Fair Food Challenge have been researching this gap and have developed a fair food policy for Australian universities. They are now seeking feedback from their most important stakeholders – you.
What do vending machines, compost bins, food courts, vegie patches, classrooms and farmers’ markets have in common?
They’re a few of the many elements that link up our universities’ food systems.
Food connects our campuses but we’re not necessarily paying it enough attention. Despite the fact we buy, sell, grow, cook, eat and research food at our universities we’re yet to see coordinated food policies that take serious responsibility for our institutional food environments.
Students, academics, waste coordinators, retailers, administrators, sustainability executives, public health professionals, gardeners and anyone else who deals with, thinks about or eats food are invited to tell Fair Food Challenge their ideas for a fair food university.
Come to this workshop to talk food, meet your fair food colleagues and of course, take part in a tasty fair food lunch.
Date and time: Friday 12 August, 9.30am-1.30pm
Venue: LAB-14, 700 Swanston St, Carlton
