UC Davis Dining Services Is Accepting Proposals for Go Green Grants

March 2nd, 2012 @ 11:00 am by Camille Kirk

Today’s blog post comes from guest writer James Boushka, Marketing Director for UC Davis Dining Services:

Under the Go Green Grants program, UC Davis affiliated students, staff, faculty, and departments are eligible to apply for funding to research, develop, design, and implement solutions to campus sustainability challenges.

UC Davis Dining Services is offering a total of $3,000 to fund innovative projects fostering a more sustainable campus. The second funding cycle calls for applications to be submitted by April 25, 2012.

The Go Green Grant Fund is generated by sales from the voluntary meal plan program, known as Join the Club. Join the Club meal plans offer non-residents with a selection of block meals for use in any of the dining commons.

“This is the first year we [Dining Services] are providing a means for the campus community to implement a sustainably-themed project that educates or works towards fostering a more sustainable campus,” said Brenan Connolly, General Manager of Resident Dining. During the first funding cycle in fall 2011, the Go Green Grant Fund provided funds to Aggie ReStore, Wild Campus, Environmental and Sustainable Living Program, and the Salad Bowl.

“UC Davis Dining Services recognizes the value in student engagement and education related to environmental and food sustainability through projects and student-organized activities,” states James Boushka, Marketing Director for Dining Services. The Go Green competition is open to all undergraduate students, graduate students, professional students, faculty, and staff at UC Davis in all departments and disciplines.

Campus community members should check out the Go Green Grant Fund request for applications and grant guidelines at http://dining.ucdavis.edu/sus-green.html. The applications are due April 25th, 2012.

All questions can be directed to the Go Green Grant Fund Office at dininggogreen@ucdavis.edu.
