At UBC, we’re working collaboratively to establish sustainable food systems on campus by prioritizing local purchasing, becoming Canada’s first Fair Trade Campus, and using compost from food waste on campus grounds.  Using the campus as a living laboratory, we’re engaging students, campus food service providers and operational staff to identify innovative solutions to improve the sustainability of food systems on campus and beyond. We’re also integrating teaching, research and operations through initiatives such as the UBC Farm, UBC Food System Project and campus gardens.
