Huntsville, Ala. ---- Students at Alabama A&M University are playing an active role in bringing about more options in their on-campus food choices, all part of a gradually swelling national initiative.

 

On Thursday, April 4, at 5:30 p.m. in the College of Business and Public Affairs building (room 117), the AAMU Environmental Science Club will host the "Real Food Challenge" organization.


The organization is conducting a tour of universities in the Southeast, and A&M has been added to its schedule. Facilitators from "Real Food Challenge" will conduct a workshop to show students how to get local, organic and healthy food.

 

“It is very important for students to have real options in their food choices,” says Dr. Elicia Moss, an active research professor who also serves as a co-advisor for the AAMU Environmental Science Club.  Moss stresses that knowing healthy food choices is vital, especially in light of the numerous food recalls consumers hear about every day.

 

“Often, college students have to eat what’s there,” Moss explains, thus, true healthy food options, as well as student influence on those options, have to be sustained.  The professor noted that simple variety in fruits and vegetable are a key piece of the nutritional puzzle.

 

Moreover, the Real Food Challenge serves as both a campaign and a network.  The campaign aims to increase the procurement of real food on college and university campuses, with the national goal of 20 percent real food by 2020.  By leveraging their purchasing power, college students can impact the larger food system.

 

The network also offers a chance for students and their allies to make connections, learn from one another, and to grow the movement.

 

The event will be helpful to students, organizers say, because it will educate students on

the quality of the foods that they consume in the cafeteria, and ways they can effectively bring about positive nutritional change.  To learn even more prior to attending the workshop, review the following links:
