on March 27, 2011

We are now accepting applications for the Real Food Challenge 2011-2012 team!

APPLY NOW to be a Regional Field Organizer or a member of the NEW Grassroots Leaders Project.

The Real Food Challenge is a youth-driven initiative.  College and high school students and other youth activists run the whole show from the grassroots organizing to the national coordination. We are looking for inspired, motivated, and imaginative individuals to join the effort and help us shape the future of this young movement. As an organization we strive to be transparent and accountable to our base and work actively to dismantle all forms of oppression in our structures and relationships. Working with the Real Food Challenge is a great leadership development experience--learn from experienced young organizers and flex your muscles!

2011 is a really exciting year for us. The number of students and schools developing powerful sustainable food projects have grown exponentially since our launch in 2008. To better support each other we are unrolling the Grassroots Leaders Program, which will provide campus-based student leaders resources, training, and support to help them carry out successful campaigns for real food. At the same time, we are planning to publicly release the Real Food Calculator, a tool we developed to help students assess their schools’ real food purchases and set a new standard for transparency in the food industry.

Applications are now being accepted for our Regional Field Organizers and *NEW* Grassroots Leaders Project.

The deadline for applying is April 15th, 2011, so don’t wait, apply now!
