The Food Literacy Project (at Harvard University Dining Services) cultivates an understanding of food from the ground up. Education focuses on four integrated areas of food and society: agriculture, nutrition, food preparation and community. The project goal is to promote enduring knowledge, enabling consumers to make informed food choices. We work to provide basic knowledge and deepen pre-existing knowledge.
The Food Literacy Project strives to have Harvard students leave campus well-equipped to grocery shop knowledgeably, identify fruits and vegetables, master cooking basics, and lead a healthy & sustainable life. Primarily, we do this work through film series, cooking classes, tours, and conversations, open to the Harvard and the surrounding community.
