real food commitmentThe Real Food Challenge leverages the power of youth and universities to create a healthy, fair and green food system.

The primary campaign is to shift $1 billion of existing university food budgets away from industrial farms and junk food and towards local/community-based, fair, ecologically sound and humane food sources—what could be called “real food”—by 2020.

During the first annual Sustainability Conference held in Steamboat, CMC Steamboat campus president Peter Perhac signed the 20% commitment. CMC Steamboat was the first community college in the nation to sign the commitment.
