The Chancellor's Student Food Committee has been working to increase the amount of local food served on campus. Founded by anthropology student Azara Mohammadi, the group is committed to leveraging the purchasing power of UAF to address food security in Alaska. Their motto is "20 percent by 2020," meaning that the committee's goal is to try to have at least 20 percent local food on students' plates within six years.
