St. Lawrence University: We Want Local Food!
For an institution that prides itself on a reputation of sustainability, our food is anything but sustainable. We, the student body, should have a say in what kind of food we eat and where that food comes from. Local foods taste better, are healthier, and have a lower environmental impact. Providing more local food on campus would also help support the local economy.We need your help to show Dining Services and the SLU Administration that there is more than just “a small percent of our student body that is really pushing for the sustainability of locally grown foods.” By turning the perceived vocal minority into a definite vocal majority, we can show that the higher cost of local food is justified by high student demand.
