BrainFeeders is the first academically recognized Food Studies Club in the Country! We act as a resource for all students that have questions regarding where food on campus comes from and how it is produced. We are establishing long-lasting food access and justice programs that actively promote a more sustainable food system by engaging local farmers, increasing transparency of issues within the food system and empowering peers to be more involved in food choices on campus.
After taking a Human Rights Food class, we realized the need for an organization on campus to bring more local, sustainable and ethical grown food to campus, so we founded BrainFeeders. With the help of our amazing members we launched our first goal of collaborating with Common Thread Farm to bring a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program to campus. The program will offer two different size shares that will be delivered at Huntington Beard Crouse Hall (HBC) every Thursday for 9 weeks during the fall semester.
We believe it is our job to reintroduce and educate more people that eating locally creates better sustainable food systems within our society and most importantly within our community at Syracuse.
A share subscription is available to SU/ESF undergraduates, graduates and all faculty. If interested in subscribing, please email us at BrainFeeders15@gmail.com.
We are an open organization to any members of Syracuse University or the State University of New York’s College of Environmental Science and Forestry.
Some of our future goals and current projects include:
- Establishing A CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) drop-off box on campus
- Provide free transportation to the CNY Regional Market on Saturdays
- Creating a Student Farmworker Alliance on campus
