Outreach & Communications

The Communication and Outreach Working Group focuses on strategies to improve connectivity and information sharing between campuses and related stakeholders who are or would like to be engaged in the campus local food movement.

Supply Chain Development

The Supply Chain Development Working Group will identify and develop supply chain models that increase the availability and accessibility of local, sustainable food for campuses. It will facilitate coordination and communication between supply chain partners (campuses, distributors, suppliers, producers, etc.) to identify and leverage opportunities to aggregate demand and improve sourcing and distribution processes.

Education & Engagement

The Education Working Group will focus on educating and activating students, faculty, staff and other stakeholders of participating institutions who are interested in initiating or enhancing the sourcing and on-campus use of local, sustainable foods.

Evaluation & Tracking

The Evaluation & Tracking Working Group will propose indicators that will help the Farm & Sea to Campus Network determine the success of their efforts, review and assess existing evaluation and metrics tools, provide recommendations for next steps around data collection and analysis, and specifically consider recommendations for improved tracking and traceability for local foods in the region.

These goals are outlined in the 2013 Campus Sustainability Council Report and focus on the areas of waste, water, and energy & emissions. Progress in these areas is tracked regularly and is detailed in the annual Campus Sustainability Progress Report. The list below is by no means comprehensive, so we encourage you to check out the report on Tumblr!
