The Minor in Community Food Systems (CFS) is a university-wide program enabling undergraduate students to engage with critical contemporary issues relating to food security, food sovereignty, and food justice. In a context of diverse goals and approaches, the CFS Minor focuses on working with community partners to collaboratively understand and develop sustainable community food systems. Students are provided with opportunities to integrate learning across courses with social, ethical, ecological, and agricultural perspectives on local food systems and participate in an experiential practicum embedded in a real-world context.
