Real Food Challenge - Anim Steele
Engaging College Students to Transform the Food System
Executive Director, Real Food Generation
Anim Steel is the co-founder of Real Food Generation and its current campaign, “Real Food Challenge.” He is also the former Director of National Programs at The Food Project in Boston. Anim holds a Master’s Degree in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and a B.A. in Astrophysics and History from Williams College.
“Real Food Challenge” leverages the power of youth and universities to create a healthy, fair and green food system. Its primary campaign is to shift $1 billion of existing university food budgets towards local/community-based, fair, ecologically sound and humane food sources —
what they call “real food”— by 2020.
Real Food Challenge also maintains a national network of student food activists—providing opportunities for networking, learning, and leadership development for thousands of emerging leaders.
