GLRPPR Sector Resource: Our Common Ground: Food Workers, Sustainable Food Advocates, and Institutions of Higher Education

Title:
Our Common Ground: Food Workers, Sustainable Food Advocates, and Institutions of Higher Education

Abstract:
In this report, we share four points of common ground: Food workers want to cook again; Food workers play an important role in food safety; Raising food workers' job standards addresses an important part of the food crisis; Food workers share an interest in food transparency. Our experience at Yale University provides one example of successful collaboration. Indeed, a more comprehensive model of sustainability on campus is not only possible but also enhanced by the involvement of food workers.
