JWU Wins 2018 New England Food Vision Prize

The combined power of JWU (an internationally recognized food authority), Rhode Island School of Design (an internationally recognized design authority) and Farm Fresh RI (a venerable local food hub) is changing the way college students eat.

JWU, RISD and Farm Fresh RI will share a 2018 New England Food Vision Prize, a $250,000 award from the Henry P. Kendall Foundation, to encourage colleges and universities to increase the amount of regionally produced food on campus menus.

The award will support a two-year collaboration to research and develop food products that will be tested and integrated into the dining services at each campus with subsequent plans for distribution through Farm Fresh RI. Read full story.
