The Food Literacy Project (FLP), is HUDS’ food education initiative. With focuses on sustainability, nutrition, food preparation and community, the FLP seeks to empower everyone to make informed food choices. Every undergraduate house/dining hall has at a fellow, and several graduate schools (GSAS, HKS, HSPH) also participate. Get to know the fellows and reach out to them if you have any questions!

The FLP also leads several initiatives. Subscribe to the weekly newsletter to stay up to date. 

Events

FLP Manager and Fellows plan events to educate the Harvard community about all aspects of food. We break down the year into monthly themes; November’s theme is nutrition. Examples include a Protein Tasting, Francophone Film Screening and Vegan Potluck, and Yoga and Mindful Eating Workshop. Check out the sidebar for upcoming events! Reach out to foodliteracy@harvard.edu if you’re interested in partnering with FLP for an event.

Open Meetings with Guest lectures

FLP hosts open meetings every other Tuesday evening from 7-8:30pm and invites a guest speaker to address different topics in our food system. Guests have included Martin Breslin, Director of Culinary at Harvard University; Simca Horwitz from Massachusetts Farm to School, and many more!

Field Trips

FLP understands there is much more to learn about food than at Harvard’s campus! FLP leads trips to farms, restaurants, and other institutions to increase food literacy through experiential learning. Trips include Ward’s Berry Farm, Red’s Best, Costa Fruit and Produce, and more!

Volunteer Opportunities

FLP has a vast set of connections, and opportunities to get your hands dirty working in the food system. Contact foodliteracy@harvard.edu if you’re interested in volunteering at the Harvard Farmer’s Market, Food for Free, or other organizations doing work in the food system.
