|FLO (Fair, Local, Organic) Food||
FLO (Fair, Local, Organic) Food is a student-run organization at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Meetings are Thursdays at 7 PM starting on
in Saunders 213
We are a campus organization committed to educating students about the food system and creating a better food economy at the University of North Carolina.
We base our definition of sustainable food around three ideals whose intersection indicate systematic health of a food system.
We support fair food for all individuals involved in production and consumption.
We support food purchases that prioritize the welfare of local economies. Prioritizing local economies entails considering all aspects of the food chain including production, processing, distribution, and consumption. FLO Food defines “local” for a given product as the closest available community-based food producer to UNC.
We support sustainable agricultural practices that are environmentally conscious. Environmentally conscious practices seek to promote biodiversity, maintain the integrity and coexistence of ecosystems and farming communities, and overall minimize the impact of agriculture on the natural environment.
