Project Description: The Berkeley Student Food Collective Food Hub will be a food cart placed around campus and select areas in Berkeley where students will be able to buy sustainable, organic, and delicious fruits, vegetables, and other snacks. It will be offered as a healthier alternative to other on-campus stores that may not offer a wide variety of healthy good options. 

Goals

  1. Offer students healthier, more ethically-minded food options.
  2. Educate students about the wide-ranging effects of their choices in buying certain types of food. 

Mission Statement

The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) provides funding for projects that reduce UC Berkeley's negative impact on the environment and make UC Berkeley more sustainable. TGIF will allocate funds to projects that promote sustainable modes of transportation, increase energy and water efficiency, restore habitat, promote environmental and food justice, and reduce the amount of waste created by UC Berkeley. Portions of the fund also support education and behavior change initiatives, student aid (via return to aid), and internships. TGIF is supported by student fees and administered through a student-majority committee and a program coordinator.
