Community Food Systems Minor

Food systems are dynamic, behavioral systems that encompass the production, distribution and consumption of food. They include social, ecological, political and health dimensions with an impact on sustainability and social justice. In the new university-wide undergraduate minor in community food systems, students and community partners work together on issues and questions related to food security, food sovereignty and food justice that arise when designing and organizing sustainable community food systems. The minor — comprised of classroom and experiential learning opportunities — also supports an advisory committee made up of faculty, students and community partners that plays an active role in developing and assessing students’ community-engaged learning experiences.
