Exciting news out of #Boston  this week! #Northeastern  University is the latest institution to sign the Real Food Campus Commitment! http://bit.ly/NEURLFD

Signing the commitment means Northeastern has pledged to shift 20% of their annual food purchases to #realfood  by 2020 - food that is #local , #humane , ecologically-sound and fair.

Congrats to +Tricia Kiefer and the many other students whose work made this victory possible!

+Raj Patel gets real with #fastfood  giant +Wendy's: http://huff.to/13jQXeK

"+Wendy's can have all the make-overs it wants, but without joining the #fairfoodprogram  , its claims are as empty as a fast food calorie, and its old-fashioned approach looks increasingly outdated."
