Sterling College claims #1 for real food on campus for second year in a row

Vermont Business Magazine: For the second consecutive year, Sterling College has been confirmed as the top college in the United States that serves food on campus that is local, sustainable, humane, and fair-trade.

This ranking comes from the Real Food Challenge, which surveyed over 200 colleges and universities throughout the United States. After analyzing all of the food used in the Sterling College kitchen from July 2014 to June 2015, the college found that 75% of its food met the real food qualification for production methods. Last year, Sterling College was at 74% real food. In comparison, the next-highest ranked institution only eats 66% real food.

“This is a significant achievement, and it demonstrates that Sterling College is on the cutting edge of environmental stewardship,” said President Matthew Derr. “We’ve built upon last year’s success, just as we’ve built upon having one of the first sustainable agriculture programs in the country. Our students are tackling how to redesign the nation’s food system into one that is just, fair, and doesn’t exacerbate climate change.”
