Hey there! I am Bri Faust, the member of the week for Husky Real Food Challenge! I am a sophomore, and I am fairly new to the Husky Real Food Challenge team. I was introduced to the club this last winter quarter and I love what this club does. I love the positive influence that our club has on the UW campus. We are working towards better food options for students, while simultaneously building awareness and creating conscious consumers. I care deeply about real food because I enjoy knowing that the food I am eating is nourishing my body and it also comes from a source that cares about the earth and the community. It is great to see that other students on campus are concerned about these issues too, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the Husky Real Food Challenge community that I’ve gotten the pleasure to know. I look forward to all the great things in store for this club and more importantly, the great things in store for the UW community!
Our first-ever Real-Food of the Week, chosen by featured member Coral Mercado, is here! Coral chose Wilcox Farm's Hard Boiled Egg! Wilcox Farms is Humane Animal Certified, meaning these eggs came from happy chickens! This makes them Real Food, as defined by Real Food Challenge! You can find these delicious eggs all over campus, and they're a great snack to help you study for midterms!

Hi! I’m Coral Mercado, your Husky Real Food Challenge member for this week! I’m a Junior in the Community, Environment, and Planning major with a minor in Nutritional Sciences. I joined Husky Real Food Challenge because I saw it as a great chance to make some real and lasting change that extended past my own plate as well as develop my leadership skills. It is also a great place to meet other people who care about food issues as much as I do. I love the holistic approach that HRFC uses to bring every to the table to talk about these issues. I am so proud of the work I have done in Husky Real Food Challenge and their mission.
Hi! I’m Megan Knight, your Husky Real Food Challenge member for this week! I’m a Freshman, and I’m originally from the East Coast (Vermont to be specific). I joined Husky Real Food Challenge because I saw the chance to make a difference in the sustainability and health of our campus. Since I grew up in a rural area I was surrounded by local, often organic food. That experience of connection to my food, and to my community, is something I feel like everyone should get the chance to experience! In Husky Real Food Challenge, I get to meet and work with other passionate students who want to improve the UW food! I’m so excited to be in the club for the next three years, and to watch UW food get better and better.
