Ramoul is a public health major and sees working on food systems and equity as a good application of his studies. The student coordinators buy 200-300 pounds of produce a week, with the rest of the produce donated from farmers markets such as the one in Kensington, along with Monterey Market, Daylight Foods, the Alameda County Community Food Bank, individuals, and UC Berkeley’s own farms and gardens.
