Fair Trade and Real Food Conference @ ASU

The food sustainability movement is growing. United Students for Fair Trade (USFT) and the Real Food Challenge (RFC) Southwest Regional Chapters are partnering to bring you a weekend full of fair and sustainable food activism! Feb. 11-13 @ Arizona State University

All over the Southwest, the food sustainability movement is growing. Students are asking their campus food service providers to purchase ethical and environmentally-sound products. Activists are working to ensure farm worker rights and fair wages. In South Phoenix and other areas, community members are planting gardens to help reverse food deserts. Although seemingly disparate, each of these actions fit into the creation of a sustainable food system as a whole. In the context of the unique Southwest cultures, economies, and environments, this conference will create a space for students and allies from across the food sustainability and justice movement to share knowledge and skills, cultivate relationships, and deepen our commitment to the movement.
