From: Students For Local Food

Who hasn’t had the urge to squeeze the tomatoes or grab the cucumber of the person next to them at the Collis salad bar? Wouldn’t that urge be even stronger if the vegetables were fresher?

The key to this unprecedented level of gastro-gasmic freshness is simple…DDS needs to start serving LOCAL FOOD.

Last week a major federal grant was funded that will allow a local non-profit called Vital Communities to work with Dartmouth Dining Service in an attempt to bring LOCAL FOOD to the students of Dartmouth. In order for this to become a reality, the students need to voice their opinion on whether local food in DDS cafeterias is a desirable alternative. PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW AND FILL OUT THE 30 SECOND SURVEY…before you know it Thayer hall will echo with groans of ecstasy.



For those of you who don’t want to take the survey, the questions are all along the lines of “Do you care about eating local food,” “Would you pay more to eat it? If so, how much,” and “Do you think local food would be successful?”
