Universities have long been advocates for healthy and sustainable societies. Across Australia, though, campus food systems are anything but, being saturated with unhealthy options sourced through unsustainable supply chains. How can we make universities walk the talk on building healthy and sustainable food systems? What role do students have to play in mobilising to demand fair food environments in Australian Universities? And how can universities become a living lab to show better food can help us all lead better lives?
