5 Interrelated Strategies

UW Food Security Taskforce is committed to a variety of interrelated strategies to end food insecurity for the UW community. These strategies were researched and recommended by various undergraduate students, taskforce members, student groups and food justice experts at UW. These strategies are in addition to the Food Share Cabinets located around campus. These strategies include:

1. Growing and Sharing Food with ACRES Student Farm- Purchasing Community Supported Agriculture Shares (CSAs) from ACRES or growing food for the UW Food Share Pantry and Cabinets. 2. Meal Swipe Sharing through UW Dining Services- Beginning with the 2021 pilot at Washakie Dining Center, students can share swipes with students who are food insecure! The SC received ASUW funding for an initial "bank" of swipes! 3. Planning for a Campus Store/Central Pantry-  Building from the success of the UW Food Share Pantry, students have voiced support for subsidized campus grocery options or a blend grocery/pantry "hub". 4. Supporting Food Share Cabinets- Established in 2017 in the Haub School, food share cabinets are now in 8 different locations at UW. Learn more by checking out ASUW’s demo cabinet in the Union! 5. Expanding Good Food Recovery and Sharing- Through mobile and email alert systems, we plan to implement good food recovery, minimizing food waste from events and on-campus dining while sharing resources.
