The College of Saint Benedict Sustainability Office is currently in the midst of cataloging food on campus for the Real Food Challenge. The Real Food website defines 'real food' as:
"food which truly nourishes producers, consumers, communities and the earth. It is a food system--from seed to plate--that fundamentally respects human dignity and health, animal welfare, social justice and environmental sustainability. Some people call it "local," "green," "slow," or "fair." We use "Real Food" as a holistic term to bring together many of these diverse ideas people have about a values-based food economy..."
Where are we cataloging?
This challenge emphasizes our commitment to the Benedctine value of Stewardship, and our goal of a just and sustainable food system.
