Real Food Challenge is accepting applications for the 2014-2015 Fellowship

Steve Peters

Real Food Challenge is currently accepting applications for the 2014-2015 Fellowship! This Fellowship focuses on building a student movement to address systemic issues in our food system involving environmental degradation, unfair labor conditions, distribution on a local/global scale, and corporate food service models. The First Application Deadline is Sunday, March 9th. The Second Application Deadline is Sunday, March 23rd. Email with questions.


The Real Food Challenge (RFC) Fellowship Program is a unique opportunity for recent college graduates to gain first-hand experience in building a social movement.  Through this 14-month program, Fellows engage in intensive projects on a regional or national level while also honing their leadership skills and food systems knowledge through our participatory learning curriculum and engaged Fellowship community.

Fellows come away with direct campaign and organizational experience, new professional and movement networks and a toolbox of relevant movement-building and organizational skills.  At the same time, they support important student-led efforts to shift millions of university dollars away from industrial agriculture and toward just, sustainable food enterprises.
