Real Food Challenge, an organization that unites students for real food in their institutions, is on a mission to shift $1 billion away from industrial agricultural and toward local, sustainable food growers.
Armed with the energy and vibrancy of the students who make up the Real Food movement  the organization runs a slew of activities to promote its message and make a change, including summits, leadership trainings, road trips and dedicated days of action.
