+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#fairfoodprogram  , its claims are as empty as a fast food calorie, and its old-fashioned approach looks increasingly outdated."

Story
Tagline
Students uniting for a healthy, just and sustainable food system
Introduction
Real Food Challenge (RFC) is a national, student-driven campaign to reshape our food economy. 

We are a network of students and youth at schools across the country, advocating for "real food" on our campuses and in our communities.

Our flagship goal to shift $1 billion of college food spending to "real food" - food that is community-based, fair, ecologically sound and humane. 

We work with student activists around the country to get schools to institute real food policies, committing to at least 20% real food purchases by 2020.
