Who we are
The IU Food Project seeks to raise awareness among the undergraduate population regarding the pressing environmental, social, economic and cultural issues related to food and food systems. It will pursue that aim along several principal avenues.
What we do
We develop undergraduate food curriculum at Indiana University Bloomington and in particular the Undergraduate Certificate in Food Studies.
We coordinate student and community groups that address food issues including hunger, just treatment of food workers, animal welfare, environmental impact of agricultural practices, nutrition and health.
We promote outreach to food organizations in the Bloomington area.
We program films, meals, and other events where food issues can be discussed and strategies developed.
We promote the “edible campus” and establishing/supporting vegetable gardens and fruit trees.
