THE WORLD’S LARGEST FAIRTRADE BROWNIE!
McGill’s Food and Dining Services has a rather odd tradition – start every year off with a record-breaking food project. Something that makes our team at the Campus Food Systems Project so happy about these creative projects, is that they integrate both sustainability and equity!
Last year, McGill used its own Macdonald Campus Farm’s sustainably produced tomatoes and garlic to create a five-course tomato-themed meal that, true to its name, was an outright tomato fiesta.The final products were also donated to local charities.
This year, the team at McGill has baked a 4,000lb fair trade brownie (enough to feed 19, 000 people) that is using 2,220 pounds of Fairtrade certified sugar, chocolate and cocoa powder, This event celebrates McGill being a certified Fair Trade Campus.
These events bring together chefs and farmers, community members and student and share out why McGill is passionate about delicious, sustainable and equitable food all year round!
