Real Food Challenge

UMASS students prepped for Real Food Challenge Signing

In 2013, Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy signed the Read Food Challenge, which requires 20% of the university’s food purchases be “real food” - local/community-based, fair, ecologically sound and humane food sources - by 2020. At the time UMass Amherst was the largest university in America to sign the agreement.
