Staying in local churches at night and USC Sustainability building during the day there was a night an unfilled minute. There were countless workshops on leadership development, Real Food Challenge campaigns, success stories, how to run the calculator, creating goals, gaining support, retaining support, storytelling, and the corporate food system, as well as panels and interactive discussions.
The most significant part of the whole weekend was connecting to other college students working towards the same goal as ourselves, to create a sustainable food system! Hearing their stories and work really helped to fuel our drive. In addition to making some great friends we also came to discover how effective CDS has been in creating change in this movement when looking at other schools in the South East.
BEST OF LUCK TO ALL THE PEOPLE HELPING TO DEVELOP AND SUPPORT THE FOOD MOVEMENT!
