A brief description of the student educators program (1st program):

The Just Food Collective, originally “Farms to K”, was established in 2009 as a student organization and program of the Mary Jane Underwood Stryker Center for Civic Engagement that strives to provide education and awareness to our campus community about the importance of supporting a just, sustainable, and local food system. There are typically three leaders that are educated and trained to lead the group for at least a year. They host monthly reflections for the members to reflect on all they have learned and emphasize certain lessons.


A brief description of the student educators program’s target audience (1st program):

The target audience is students interested in food justice and community members that engage in food justice work. We seek to build relationships between the college and our greater community, to increase the amount of locally-grown food served on our campus, and to develop and support a local food system that fosters sustainable and humane agricultural practices, safe and fair working conditions, and food access for all.
