GW Real Food Real Jobs - Fix Our Dining Hall
GW Real Food, Real Jobs Petition
As students, staff, faculty, and members of the George Washington University community, we voice our support for a dining hall at GW that provides both real food and real jobs.
Our University has a mandate to care for all community members, which includes over 60 dining workers currently employed at GW who have worked hard for decades to feed students, staff, faculty, and the community.
We urge President Knapp and the administration to create a dining hall that advances the aforementioned values by:
-Affordable Dining Hall
Providing two quality affordable meals daily through a swipe system, mindful of dietary restrictions
-Real, and sustainable food and dining
Retaining all current workers with union recognition and a fair contract
Immediately enacting the commitment to 20% local, sustainable, humane, fair food
Creating partnerships with local farmers and businesses to source food
Allowing student review of any and all GW dining proposals
-Student Oversight and Involvement
And hold public forum where students and community members can ask questions to all bidding companies
Creating student work-studies at GW to research and enact these goals
