A clearinghouse of information regarding UVA Dining's progress toward a more sustainable food system.
Global Sustainability Food Projects
The Global Sustainability course (the foundation of the U.Va. Global Sustainability minor) has long focused on semester-long projects to connect the dots between what the students are learning via powerpoint in the classroom and what is happening in our community. They have put together a comprehensive website of all projects students have completed since the course was first offered in Fall 2007.

You can search projects by student name or by topic, and clicking on the food topic reveals the wide variety of food-focused projects that students have conducted over the past few years. Topics range from food waste audits to mapping Charlottesville's community food system. Spend some time poking around - it's neat to see the research students have done in semesters past!
