The VU Foodhub Project

On the 6th of October 2016, the Green Office started, in collaboration with Ons Eten a Foodhub project. This means that once every two weeks the office is a distribution point for organically and locally produced fruits and vegetables. These food baskets will be accompanied by varying recipes that will support you in creating a meal that is healthy for yourself and the environment. In doing so we try to promote a vegetarian cooking style with sustainably produced products. We need members for the following tasks:
Be present at the pick-up location (the office) every other week on Thursday from 15:00 till 17:30 when the distribution takes place.
Translate the recipes from Dutch to English.
In return for your help, a free basket of fruits and veggies is available!

School Sustainability Enrichment Program (pilot)

Are you interested in engaging the younger generation in issues surrounding climate change and sustainability? The Green Office is starting a pilot project in elementary schools to engage local youth in these very relevant topics. This project is – as yet – unchartered territory for the Green Office and the Education portfolio and as such, the individual who is interested in this project will play an essential role in its conception and development.
