HU FARMER'S MARKET INITIATIVE started this petition to HU Farmer's Market Initiative

The HU Farmer’s Market Initiative has several goals. Including increasing awareness of Food Deserts within the African-American community and engaging college students in the effort to make eating healthy nutritious food a conscious part of our culture.

We have several activations planned to help achieve these objectives including bringing a seasonal farmer’s market to campus, bringing a 24 hour healthy bodega to or near campus and providing tools and resources to help students learn how to shop and prepare healthy meals when challenged by a food desert.

One of the ways we plan to increase awareness is to publish the The Oasis Cookbook - Healthy Nutritious Recipes For College Students To Survive Food Deserts

The vision for this book is a collection of recipes and tips to help college students learn to shop for, prepare and enjoy healthy nutritious and affordable food, even when challenged by a Food Desert. The idea is to invite some of the top African-American chefs in the country to contribute a recipe and to weigh in editorially about the value of healthy eating at an early age.
