Haley Brown started this petition to Northern Arizona University and

While some food at Northern Arizona is obtained locally, it is not enough to be in line with the University's claims of sustainability. As students who are consuming and paying for the food supplied by the university, we should have the power to choose what we consume. Currently, NAU’s food is supplied by Sodexo and 9/36 dining options around campus incorporate local produce. However, most of the locally sourced food is vegetables, and only a portion of produce is sourced locally at these 9 locations.

We would like to increase this amount of locally grown food in our dining halls, with the focus being on obtaining more locally sourced meats. As of now, meat in the dining hall is not obtained locally, yet there are local companies who are willing and capable of providing meat to NAU Campus Dining. AZ Grass Raised Beef Company is a farm that we reached out to and they confirmed that they would be able to supply the university with meat. This initiative would decrease carbon emissions and support the local economy. Along with this, students will be able to know where a greater portion of their food is coming from. Please sign this petition to support locally grown food at Northern Arizona University.
