CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU TO OUR SHOP FOUNDERS, MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS!!!
We are so proud of everything that you do/have done to make The SHOP such wonderful organization dedicated to ensuring food security for students on the Iowa State University campus.
The SHOP was recently featured as one of only 68 U.S. institutions in the 2014 STARS Annual Review who received a “gold” rating for their campus sustainability efforts.
The Sustainability Tracking Assessment & Rating System (STARS) is a framework developed by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) for colleges and universities nationwide to earn points for achieving sustainable practices. Based on point total, STARS participants are given one of the following rankings: bronze, silver, gold or platinum and are featured in their annual review. The SHOP’s rating will only be valid for three years, but the accomplishments, successes and legacy of our organization will continue to live on!
