GW signed on to the Real Food Campus Commitment in April 2014. The university has committed to procuring 20% 'Real Food' by 2020. This challenge campaign and associated calculator tool will be implemented to track sustainable food and beverage purchasing efforts based on our 2012/13 baseline assessment. This effort will not only increase the transparency of food served on campus, but provide educational and professional development opportunities for students throughout the years ahead.
The Real Food Calculator tool is the method used to determine annual purchases of sustainable foods for the student dining program.
