The Campus Food Systems Project is the only national farm to campus initiative in Canada.

Our goal: to create meaningful learning experiences in the process of creating healthy, sustainable and equitable food systems

Our process: to connect and empower students with the knowledge and leadership skills they need to get more healthy, local, sustainable food to campus.
Why Campuses
We believe that students and campus communities can create healthy, local and sustainable food systems on campus and across the country.

  • Campuses spend approximately $30-billion a year*
  • Campuses are hubs of Innovation with $10 billion worth of research activities*
  • There are 1.2 million students in Canada in degree-programs
  • Campuses are places for students to develop and live out their values
  • Campuses are vital members of their community
  • Campuses are often located on prime agricultural land

By harnessing the resources of campuses as research institutions, innovators, and large purchasers, campuses have the potential to tip our food system.
