Foodshed UGA is an initiative to engage the campus and community in sustainability and innovation through the food that we eat. Foodsheds are "geographic areas that feed population centers." What we eat and how we eat have major implications for our future sustainability and health. Foodshed is an interdisciplinary food solutions initiative to engage the community in sustainability and innovation through the food we grow, eat, and waste.
Foodshed will enhance the social infrastructure at UGA, engage the campus as a living laboratory, and support experiential learning, research, and public service and outreach to promote food security and sustainable food systems at UGA and in the communities we serve.
Foodshed is a project of the Sustainable Food Systems Initiative, Office of Service-Learning, and the Office of Sustainability in collaboration with valued campus and community partners.
