Food Revolution Manifesto
We believe access to wholesome, nutritious food leads to improved health, happiness and academic success.
We prioritize locally-sourced and minimally-processed ingredients to support local economies, land stewardship and food transparency.
We believe the way food is grown, distributed, and prepared should celebrate diversity and our shared humanity by providing not only sustenance, but justice, beauty and pleasure.
We believe ultra-processed foods hide serious costs like degradation of the environment, unfair agricultural practices and harm to health.
We believe in creating and preparing healthy recipes, and offering abundant plant-based options.
We believe in enabling and inspiring lifelong health and wellbeing through conscious decisions about food.
We believe that eating together is just as important as what you eat.

How You Can Help
Sort it Out
UBC aspires to be a “Zero Waste” campus where all unwanted items are treated as reusable resources. You can make a difference by using Sort it Out stations to sort food scraps and recyclables.
Choose Low Carbon Foods
Meat production and food transportation are major contributors to climate change. Consider meat-free meals, don’t waste food and buy local wherever possible.
