Every one of us interacts with food on a daily basis in some way. This week, the UW Farm, Campus Food Pantry and ASUW Student Food Cooperative will be discussing various aspects of our food systems as part of the Sustainability Stories seminar series. Also happening this week is a Student Sustainability Forum, movie screening, discussion on diversity and much more.
We highlight the top sustainability-related events across UW each week so you can quickly find the ones you're interested in. We also always have a full, comprehensive list of all campus sustainability events on our calendar. You can even subscribe to get weekly emails to keep up to date on all the sustainability events happening around UW.
