IU Food Summits

The Indiana University Food Summits convene student, faculty, staff and community stakeholders to discuss major issues relating to food planning, how the university should define and track local and sustainable food for the campus. 

IUB has held two food summits and plans to hold another in during Fall of 2014. Here are the topics: 

  1. Summit #1: How should we define and track sustainable food?
  2. Summit #2: How can we work with our vendors to access sustainable food data? What opportunities does access to data afford all parties?
  3. Summit #3: How can we shift stakeholder demand toward sustainable food choices?

The 3rd IU Food Summit is scheduled for October 24, 2014 @ 11-2:30pm, in the Neal Marshall Black Culture Center - Grand Hall. At this summit, we are looking to bring in students from around campus and discuss sustainable food at IUB. This will be an opportunity for students to network with faculty and staff working with food throughout the IU system and to meet other students with similar interests in food and sustainability. Check back here in September for more information.
