Empowering college students for a lifetime of eco-conscious food habits.
⅓ of global greenhouse gas emissions come from our food production system
30+ different pesticides are sprayed on the average conventionally grown tomato
90% of animals raised for meat, eggs, and dairy in the US are raised in crowded, stressful conditions on factory farms
