Real Food Challenge

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?

Here is the assessment that our food is going through.

This challenge emphasizes our commitment to the Benedctine value of Stewardship, and our goal of a just and sustainable food system.
