Developing a Sustainable UBC Food System   Scenario 3:   Customer Support for a Local Food System and Food Produced from Ecologically and Socially Conscious Producers               AGSC 450 April 14, 200 6   Group 9:  Jen n if er Blad es Cin d y Cho w Manp reet Dhaliwa l Sien n a Huan g Victo ria Lo Oscar Pottin g er Ann ie Tsan g       2  Abstract: The ult im ate go al of the UBC Food S ystems Project is to increas e the sustainabil it y of the universit y food s ystem. One step towards achievi ng thi s goal involves re -locali z ati on of our foodstuffs. Consequentl y, our task in 2006 was to develop a surv e y to asses s the desirabil it y and feasibi li t y of re-loc ali z ati on on campus alon g with current pur chasin g beh a viors, and to further determi ne will ingn ess to purchase foods produc ed by so ciall y and ecolo gic all y cons cious producers.  This surv e y has been buil t upon a foun dati on provided by ou r coll eagu es over th e past several ye ars and fin ali z ed through int e gr ati on of information provide d through a pil ot test made up of both a cl ass and a field surve y. Furthe r , funding, inc enti ves and surve y implementation have bee n organiz ed to ensure suc cess. Coll ecti vel y, th e res ult ing surve y can be implemented in the fall of 2006, through eit her stu dent distribut ion or a web based surve y, to provide statist icall y relev ant result s to our partne rs in food services on cam pus to move towards a more sust ainable food sys tem he re at UBC.   Background and Introduction R esidents of Vancouv er, as in most developed cou ntries, have com e to ex pect ye ar round avail abil it y of a wide arr a y of food items from all over the world. 9   To meet consum er demands, four important developm ents have taken pl ace on a glob al level: 1) the buil ding and mainten anc e of a transport ati on infrast ructure with low dire ct cost; 2) intensificati on of agricultural technolog y; 3) widespre a d comm it ment to global free tr ade poli c y; and 4) vertical and ho riz ontal consol idation and centr ali z ati on of the corporate food s ystem. 4   Food items that arrive on UBC campus , for the most part , will travel betwee n 250 0-4000 km befor e it rea c hes our plates. 2   Whil e the globaliz ati on of our food s ystem seems economi call y ef ficient, t he foods ar e artificiall y che ap.  The ph ysical distan cing of foo d from produc ers to cons umers has caus ed man y ne gati ve ex ternali ti es th at consumers do not pay for dire ctl y. 2  Conseq uentl y, our food s ystem is deemed so ciall y, enviro nmentall y and economi call y unsust ain able. The environmental and ecologic al costs include th e rele ase of carbon emi ssi ons, which contribut e to global war mi ng, dep letion of wildl ife habit at, loss of gen eti c diversit y and soil quali t y, and inc reas ed gr ound and wate r pollut ion. Social costs include the dist ancing of consum ers from produ ce rs and a disparit y in the dist ributi on of wealt h.  Eco nomi c costs include  3  decli nin g pro fit mar gins for fa rmers, alon g with  i ncreas ed costs of ex tenuati ng environmental impacts, and glob al food transport. 7 One of the main issues fa ced on UBC campus is feeding its growin g popula ti on in a sust ainable fashion . Acc ording to the Unive rsit y of Britis h Col umbi a Foo d S ystem Project (UBC FS P ) guidi n g princ ipl es, re-locali z ati on will help improve the sustainabil it y of the food s ystem he re at UBC. 9  One step towards doin g so i s determini ng if it is feasibl e for food outl ets to use locall y produc ed foo d. We need to ensure th at there is consumer will ingness to bu y loc all y produced food, which wi ll essentiall y off er securit y to those providi n g food . The purpose of last year’s questionnaire was to determine the willingness of UBC residents to buy and pay m ore for local foods; this ye ar we have add ed two new obje cti ves to the surve y: 1) to assess the level of desirabil it y amon g UBC consum ers to purch ase a selecti on of food produ ce d from ecolo gic all y and sociall y conscious pr oducers and 2) to assess current p ur chasin g beh av iours, rather than just att it udes, towards these products. The final result s from thi s surve y can be pres ented to UBC food outl ets to encoura ge incorporati on of both loc al foods and foods produ ced b y ecologi call y and s ociall y conscious produ cers. As a group, we understand that the und erl yin g mot ivation for m ost businesses is profit s, however, we also reali z e that chan ge is possi ble provided that the economi c sit uati on is not negati vel y aff ected. We beli eve that food outl ets will be more likel y to chan ge the food the y provide if result s dete rmine there is a demand fo r them on campus .  Value Assumption W e, as a group, acknowl edge that bein g brou ght u p in an economi call y cen tered world causes peopl e to be anthr opocentric. Since human beings driv e food produ c ti on and food securit y is of gr eat con cern world wide, we look at situations through thi s anthropoc entric view. Ho weve r, being educat ed in the Fac ult y of Land and Food S ys tems, our group holds a weak er  4  anthropocentri c par adigm and takes int o con sider ati on a biocentric vie wpo int , as it is important to promot e the conserv ati on of our natur al environ ment and its resourc es. Vision Statement: The seven prin cipl es for a sust ainable food s yste m at UBC have been created throu gh 3 yea rs of UBC FS P to guide sust ainabili t y of the UBC food s ystem. Thes e pri ncipl es act as a framewo rk to a chiev e su stainabil it y and must be able to provoke people to anal yz e and potentiall y ch an ge the wa y th e y per ceive their foo d s ystem and environme nt. Through ou r pilot studi es, we reali z ed that the vast majorit y of peopl e do not full y unde rstand the meanin g of local, organic, fair trad e, and fr ee -r an ge foods. Ther efor e, alt hough we agree with the basis of the principles, we beli ev e an emphasis should be place d on promot ing educ ati on, awar eness, and understandin g of wh at a sust ainable food s ystem is and its impacts on the rest of the comm unit y.   Group 8 of AGS C I 450 s uggested addin g an 8 t h  principle: “to address the issue of looking at the UBC food s ystem i n a glob al contex t and be ing aw are of the recipro c al impacts the UBC food system and those systems around it have on one another”. We would like to expand on this 8 t h  principle, by su ggesti ng a glob al use for the UBCFS P . If our visi on is met, we will have a sust ainable UBC food s ystem, and it shoul d act as a workin g model for oth er comm unit ies, cit ies and eventuall y countri es. Thus, the global comm unit y can mov e closer to t he ult im ate go al of food securit y. Wit h this vision in mind, the go al of this paper is t o provide guidelines t o conduct a surve y determi nin g cons umer att it udes and beh av iors in the fall of 2006. After revi ewin g previous AGS C I 450 que sti onnaires, our group created a pr eli mi nar y versio n that was admi nist ered to other AG S C I 450 students, modified as per su ggesti ons, an d re-tested in a field stud y using UBC campus consum ers. We will revi ew the respons es and pro vide a discussi on of these result s. Our paper will also describe a plan of acti on to have the su rv e y admi nist ered in the  5  fall of 2006. Finall y, we will provide r ecommendations to next year’s group and the AGSCI 450 teachin g team re gardin g anal ysis and the back -up onli ne surve y. Sampling Technique The purpose of usin g qu e sti onnaires and surve ys i s to determi ne the att ribu tes and dynami cs o f a certain po pulation. 14  In our case, in order to assess the desira bil it y of consum ing sust ainable foods and the current pur chasin g beh a viors among UBC consu mers, a tar get population must be established. Upon reviewing previous years’ research on this topic we decided that our populati on shoul d be custom ers at food outl ets on the UBC campus .  By accur atel y sampli n g the tar get popul ati on of all UBC food consum e rs, we shoul d be able to derive the populati on ch a racte risti cs needed for th e UBC FS P . Group 8 of AGS C I 450 2005, encounter ed a probl em when definin g the scop e of the tar get popul ati on and assessing the boundaries of the UB C food s ystem. Our group, s im il ar to previous ASGC I 450 groups, decid ed to lim it the surve y to are as wher e people can pur c hase food on campus , thi s includes p rivate residenc es, the food outl e ts in the Universit y Vill a ge, and all other campus food outl ets.  It is unre ali sti c to pol l all UBC consum ers indivi d uall y, so our group, like group 1 and 8 of the 2004 and 2005 AG S C I 450 class respecti vel y, de cided on a pr oportio nal strati fied random sampl e of the tar get popul ati on. This form of sampl ing divi des the enti re po pulation into strata, which are th en sampled relative to the enti re popul ati on. 8  Whil e thi s allows for a more detailed anal ysis of the enti re pop ulatio n, as previous grou ps pointed out, it is hard to get a compl etel y random sampl e of each st ratum . Since we plan to admi nist er the surve y fa ce - t o -fac e, the dat a will be t ype of convenien ce sampli ng call ed quota sampl ing. Quota sampli n g is sim il ar to strati fied sampli ng in tha t the target popul ati ons is divided into strata, but the strata are sampled eit her b y conveni ence or judgment. 9  Bec ause indi viduals chosen for the su rve y ar e not select ed randoml y, jud gin g the ac curac y of the result s cann ot be done with standard error and confid ence.  6  Therefo re the su rve y will be used as an ex ploratory investi gati on and can be anal yz ed to ex trapolate pertinent info rmati on. This must be taken int o account wh en an al yz ing th e final result s of the surve y.  To determi ne the str ata, our group looked into the revenue of various areas around campus . Throu gh revenu e anal ysis , we wer e able to derive the amount of consum er acti vit y in certain areas (Appendix 1). Thus, we divi ded the campus int o 7 locati ons for questi onnaire dist ributi on: The S.U.B., UBC Vill a ge, Totem Par k Dining Room, Vanier Dining Room, Ga ge Towers, Trek Ex press area, and Sa ge Bist ro.  Th ese areas rep resent 2/3 of our tar get popul ati on, which makes it more repr esentative of the total UBC consum er population. 2  Sample Size An accu rate sampl e siz e will all ow the anal yz e rs of the information to suggest diff er ent chara cterist ics amon g the UBC consum ers. 9  Similar to previous years’ groups, we used the formul a outl ined in the Resear ch Methods resourc e pa ges. 1 5   Where N is the tot al popul ati on, n is the sample siz e and e is the desired error. Th e two pre vious groups used a plus/ mi nus of 5% for thei r err or, but thi s would result in a sampl e siz e of less than 1% of the population, so we decid ed to use an erro r of plus/ mi nus 3%. This result is a sampl e siz e of 1090 participants. This num ber takes int o account non -r esponses, therefor e we decided to bring the numbe r down to an even 1000. Each of th e 7 areas will be surve yed accordin g to th eir relative us e (App endix 1).  Applying the Survey The go al of our project is to have a surv e y compl e ted so that the AGSC I 45 0 class of 2007 can an al yz e our dat a and provide result s to our partners at AMS Food and Bev er a ges (AMS FB ) and UBC Foo d Services (U BC FS ). In order t o do so, we have arran ged for the AGSC I 100 class of 2006 to carr y out surve yin g responsi bil it ies. Nex t yea r, AGS C I 100 will becom e n=     N__       1+ N(e ) 2   7  AGSC I 150 and will be worth an ex tra cr edit . Dr. Andrew Riseman, the te acher of AGSC I 150, has notified us that the students are required to co mpl ete 2-4 hours of com muni t y s ervic e and consequentl y  can us e thi s time to hand out questi onnaires. In ord er to do so , he has su ggested that the class be pr esente d a back groun d on the UBCFS P , as well as a sho r t lesson on how to conduct a surv e y. The AGSC I 450 tea chin g team will present this, using re sources and information from our pro ject. Furthe r, our group has cre ated a do cument of inst ructi ons on handing out surv e ys (Ap pendix 4) and proposed a time line for the surve y i mpl ementati on (Appendix 5). By int rodu cing the project to AGS C I 150 students, the y will become awar e of food s ystems and be bett er prep ared for their car e ers in the facult y of Land and Food S ystems. The y will also learn the basics of surve yin g and stati sti cs, whil e comp leting their comm unit y service hours. We have also decided to use an onli ne surve y as a bac k -up pl an, a timeline can be found for thi s surve y in Appendix 6. Although a strong response rate is no t guar anteed, th e surve y will be easie r to admi nist er and will not require an inst ructi on lesso n for students. Furthermo re , since th e onli ne surve y would be im plemented throu gh WebCT, courses would determi ne the strat a, rath er than food outl ets on campus . Budget The main ex penses of thi s project would be photo cop yin g fees. Th ere are 6 pages per surve y pack a ge; the surv e y is 4 pages, and the inf ormative piece and coup ons are 1 page each.  Using Cop yR i ght, the pr ojected cost is $0.40 per packa ge or $400 fo r 100 0 surve ys (for a breakdown of costs , see appendix 2).  The teachin g te am su gge sted contacti n g our UBC Food S ystem Proje ct part ners such as UBCFS for fundin g, how ever the y wer e unrespons ive. Whil e increasin g cou rse fe es to cover th e cost of the UBCFS P is an opti on suggested b y Al ejandro Roj as, ther e ar e contradictor y opini ons regardin g usa ge of cours e funds as the surv e y itse lf is not part of course m aterials. Consequentl y,  8  the most feasibl e opti on might be partial funding provided b y Agora in co mbi nati on with other fund raisi n g ini ti ati ves.  Lau chlan Jankola, chief financial offic er of Agora Eats Café fo r 2005 - 2007 comm it ted Agor a to sponsorship in 2006 (contact information in Ap pendix 3).  The Ago ra comm it tee has approv ed the request and will comm it up to $150 in funding towa rds the AGS C I 450 UBCFS P for winte r of 2006.  This donation ma y be in the form of fo od, mone y or gift certific ates, dependin g on our needs.  Init iall y, a small advertisement for Agor a was p roposed in ex change, howev er, this was not implemented due to their adve rtisi ng restrictions and shoul d be re -ex ami ned in the fall . Incentives An important issue involved in the admi nist rati on of surve ys is encou ra gin g indi viduals to parti cipate.  Foll owin g recomm endati ons from group 8 of AGSC I 2005, we have decided to provide incenti ves fo r res pondents.  Coupo ns will be provided wit h the surv e y to encour a ge students to tr y local food products for themselves.  Erin Nichols, the promoti ons supervisor at Small Potatoes Urban Deli ver y (SP UD), has agree d to provide discounts for SPUD products to all 1000 participant s in ex change fo r promot ing th eir compan y in the infor mative handout (contact inform ati on in Appendix 3).  The y provid ed a promoti onal code, which can be t yp ed in at the SPUD websit e (w ww.spud.ca) and will off er a tot al of $25 off their first 4 deli veries.  This code is located on a coup on att ached to the tak e -h ome handout.  UBC Farm’s program coordinator, Mark Bomford, has agreed to provide the first 100 respondents with coupon s for 10% off farm ma rke t produce of pu rchas es o ver $10 (cont act information in Appendix 3). The UBC Farm disco unt is in its preli mi nar y s tages of dev elopm ent; consequentl y, thi s partne rship must be re-visi ted in the fall of 2006 to re -es tablis h support. The coupon for SPUD has be en approved and the draft for UBC Fa rm has been sent to Mark Bomford. An y future cha nges mus t be re- approve d by both or ganiz ati ons prior to distribut ion.  9  Research Methodology Based on th e purposes of thi s questi onnaire, outl ined wit hin our introducti on, our resea rch te am formul ated a surve y with 17 questi o ns and the result ing draft questi onnaire was subm it ted to our 'scen ari o room' fo r fe edba ck. Th eir fe edback was then inc orporated into a fin al questi onnaire dist ributed to UBC food consum e rs.  The surve y was int roduc ed in a one-p a ge summar y to defin e, in a spe c ific and concise manner, the te rminol og y that would be used throu ghout the questi onnair e. This was done to ensure that respondents u nderstood the meanin g of each te rm wit hin the con tex t of the surve y, enabli ng th em to answer the questi ons to the best of th eir abil it y. Ou r intro ducti on was modified from its original fo rmat in response to su ggesti ons from students in our 's ce nario room '. The result ing int roducti on (pl ease refe r to appendix 7) was shortened acc ordin gly to make a more reade r-f riendl y version fo r the UBC population. The surve y was then con cluded wit h an informative piece on the benefits of pur chasin g local foods alon g with food s produced from sociall y and ecolo gic all y conscious produc ers. Thi s was done to help incr ea se present knowl ed ge of these foods in an att e mpt to change future beh avior.  1 )  Ar e yo u a:        Facult y:_ _ _ _ _ __ _ __ _ __ _ ___ _ _ _  __ _ _ UB C Und er gr ad uate St u d ent  __ _ _ UB C Facult y Me mb er                 Gend er : M  /  F  ___ _ UB C Staf f  __ _ _ UB C Grad uate Stud en t       Age (P lease cir cle one) :              ___ _ Other : ___ _ __ _ __ _ _ __ _     18 & und er    19 - 3 0    31 - 5 5    56 & over  The first questi on in our surve y was v er y sim il ar to our coll ea gues ' from AGSC I 450 group 8, 2005.  Our grou p agrees th at it is relevan t to determi ne the demo graphic dist ributi o n of the populati on for future anal ysis to det ermine wh ich students woul d like to (or ar e) cu rrentl y purchasin g the foods o f interest. 9  Andrew Parr, of UBC Food Se rvices, has also determined that certain 'nich e mark ets' ex ist on campus and are oft en relat ed to areas of stu d y. As a result , it would be most beneficial to determine both who is and is not interested in these products to  10  determi ne app ropriate m arketi n g strate gies in the future . 9  The onl y ch an ge made to the ori ginal questi on was chan gin g th e te rm 'depa rtment ' to 'fa cult y' to make th e questi on clear er as man y AGS C I 450 students w er e unsure of th e definiti on of 'd epartment '.  2 )   Do you live o n ca mp us?

AGS C I 450 Group 8 (2005) had a version of thi s questi on that asked consum ers to rank their t op three features.  Howeve r, due to the freq uenc y of respondents tha t onl y che cked the top thr ee choic es rath er than ranking th em, the y su gge sted modi f yin g it to emphasiz e the inst ructi ons of ranking th e items by using bold face type and underlining. Choices such as ‘Organic/ Fair Trade’ and ‘Free Range/ Free Run’ were added to determine their importance to consumers.  1 7 )  W o uld yo u like to see mor e loca ll y pro d uce d , organic and /o r fair trad e prod ucts         availa b le on the UB C camp u s?   a) Yes    b) No    c) Don’t know One purpose of this surve y was to dete rmine whet her a ma rket cur rentl y ex ist s on the UBC campus fo r locall y produced foods, o r ganic, and fair tr ade produ cts. T herefo re, questi on seventeen s eeks to furthe r determi ne the le vel of consum er interest for th ese products on campus .  Without consumer demand for such produ cts, impl ementing them int o the UBC food s ystem would be futi le and a waste of resour ces.  Ov erall , thi s questi on strives to ex tract consu mers' overall att it ude towards these products.  Results & Discussion of Pilot Tests Both a class and field sur ve y was admini stered on UBC campus in our pilot test to anal yz e th e ef fecti ven ess of our surve y qu esti ons along with the qu esti onnaire desi gn. To accompl ish this task we used quota  sampl ing bec ause actu al result s wer e not used for statis ti cal anal ysis and there was li mi ted tim e avail able. Although the info rmati on was not used to calculat e  15  an y so rt of standa rd er ror , we were able to noti c e trends in responses to indi cate poorl y understood questi ons . 1    Within the class surve y, 22 students compl eted the surve y. In th e field surv e y, 44 su rve ys were compl eted wit h 15  handed out at the SUB, 15 handed out in the 99 ch airs area, and 14 handed out at the UBC vil lage. We chose these lo c ati ons as the y m ake -up a major perc enta ge of food sales on campus . The result s from bot h surve ys are summariz ed in Ap pendix 8. The following pa ra gr aphs discuss the result s of both s urve ys, compa re and con trast the two test groups polled, and outl ine some problems with the questi ons in our surve y. Result s from the pil ot tests have ult im ately led to ch an ges in both format and content of th e final questi onnaire to be dist ributed.  When comparing th e sur ve y of AGSC I 450 stude nts to t he poll of UBC co nsum ers at the food outlets, the disparity in ‘food knowledge’ was very apparent. Nearly every question showed that as a result of the cou rse content in the Land, Food and Comm unit y s eri es, student responses were comm onl y mor e ed ucated. In gener al, stude nts with knowledge abou t local, organic, free trade and fre e-r an ge food s have stron ger opinions and understand the impa cts of purchasin g these foods. A comm on t heme when comparin g th e result s from our surv e ys is that our peers in ASGC I 450 gen er all y we re will ing and/o r alre ad y purchasin g sust ainable fo ods. The result s, for the most part indi cate tha t more information and increas ed mark eti ng of these products (and the benefits of them) need to be made av ail able to the publi c in order for a ch a n ge to o ccur in the UBC food s ystem.   Demographics of the sur ve y can be found in App endix 8, tables 1 and 2. The relative differen ces in gend er bet ween the two tests were also evident as the cl ass surve y was filled out prim aril y b y female stud ents (90%), yet the field surve y was approx im ately ev en. How ever, this  16  ma y be due to the dist rib uti on of sex es with in the facult y of Land and Food S ystems that has predomi nantl y mor e fem ales (75%) th an males (2 5%). 1 0  From our surve y, Appendix 8 table 2, it is evident that the majority of respondents do not live on campus or rel y on cafet eria me als. Onl y one student from the f iel d surve y and zero from the class surve y lived in a residenc e that provided meals. How eve r, since we did not poll consum ers at the residen c e ca f eteri as, thi s is an unrepres entative sampl e as students with UBC me al plans make -up a lar ge consum er bas e of UBC food se rvices. 9   Result s from the demogr ap hic breakdow n emphasiz e the importance of proper sampl in g techniqu es for students nex t ye ar in orde r to receive statist icall y ac curate result s. From the data coll ected in questi on 3, summariz ed in Appendix 8 table 3, we found that the lar ge majorit y of stud ents from bot h tests purc hase foods on campus . Of these students, 77% from the field surve y and 88 % from the class su rv e y, pu rchas e food betwee n 1 -6 times per we ek on campus . This shows that most students are bu ying food re gularl y and co nsequentl y have significant pur chasin g po wer on campus . We also found that 63% of studen ts from the field surve y ar e most often bu yi n g their foods from the SUB and onl y 14% from 'othe r ' sourc es. This can be compared to onl y 32% of those in the class surve y statin g that the y purchase foods most often from the SU B with another 32% from 'other ' sources. This is likel y du e t o the ph ysic al dist ance betwe en the Macmi ll an buil ding and the SUB. Nev ertheless, infor mation provided by thi s questi on is useful to determi ne the loc ati ons where str ate gies should b e put in place first to affe ct the lar gest consumer base.   Questi on 4, summ ariz ed in Appendix 8 table 4, att empt s to determi ne know ledge regardin g loc al foods. Fr om the class surve y, 36% of students are fami li ar with foods that gro w locall y compared to onl y 11% withi n the field surv e y. Questi on 5, summariz ed in table 5, then se eks to determi ne actual purchasin g beh avior of t hese foods. It was found that most people  17  'sometimes' purchase local foods, however, in the field study 30% were ‘unsure’ if they did or not compared to14% fro m the class surve y. Whe n asked which foods p eo ple most comm onl y purchase, m a n y indi viduals from the field surv e y were unsu re of wh at food s were loc al, for ex ampl e statin g that oran ges are lo cal to BC.  Sev eral also answ er ed with non -specific statements such as 'man y Canadian products ' or 'fr uit '.   Quest ion 6, summ ariz ed in Appendix 8 table 6, shows ke y cha ract eristi c differ ences between the two su rve ys. We found that most people from the class surv e y have a dist inct opini on on which is more important to purchasing in regards to local foods as a total of 91% have an opini on one wa y or the other. How eve r, a dist inct opini on is not seen in the majorit y of respondents withi n the fi eld stud y as onl y 61% feel strongl y one wa y or th e other and the gr eatest pe rcent a ge of people, 39%, havin g 'no op ini on' on thi s s ubject.  Again, this lack of opini on is important as it shows man y ma y l ack knowledge re gardin g asp e cts of local foods thereb y supportin g the need for incr eas ed aw aren e ss through promot ional acti vit ies.  Questi on 7 a and b, foun d in Appendix 8 tables 7 and 8, rega rd the pe rceiv ed benefits and drawba cks of pur chasin g local foods. As this ques ti on is open -ended, the number of votes ex ceeds the tot al num ber of people surv e yed as ma n y provid ed more than one answe r. From responses provided, th e most comm onl y cit ed be nefits for purc hasin g loca ll y produc ed foods in both tests was support for the local econom y and fresher/ bette r tasti ng foo ds.  However, 21 % of students from the class s urve y also rep orted that l ocal foods help prote ct the environment through decr eas ed tr ansp ortation compared to onl y 3% from the field stud y who menti oned thi s as a major ben efit. It also is important to note that from the field surve y 9/ 4 4, or 20%, of indi viduals left this question blank or responded 'n ot sure', compar ed to 1/ 22, or 5%, in the class surve y. The la r ge numbe r of non -r esponses from t he field surve y could be due to lack of  18  knowledge re gardin g loc al foods or due to incr eas ed respondent bu rden fo r fil li ng out open -ended questi ons. 9     The second part of thi s questi on seeks to identi f y possi ble disadvantages fo r choosi ng locall y produ ced foods and the result s are summa riz ed in Appendix 8 table 8. From repli es, the gr eatest dr awba cks inclu ded a lack of vari et y and gr eate r ex penses of food produced loc all y. Although we do agr ee th at locall y produced foods offer less v ariet y to the consum er, we are unsure whethe r the y  wou ld necessaril y cost mor e especiall y when lo cal foo ds are in season. We believe that respondents, in both tests, may be confusing ‘local’ foods with ‘organic’ foo ds, a comm on mistake, which would cause respondents to believe that local food s are inde ed more expensive. This further suggests a lack of understanding of ‘local foods.’   From questi on 8 and 9, summ ariz ed in Appendix 8 tables 9 and 10, the des irabil it y o f local foods was ex ami ned based primaril y on the iss ue of price. Th e major it y of indivi duals in both surve ys would be m ore open to pur chase loc a l foods if prices compa re d to non -local foods. Though, the numbe r of people wil li ng to bu y local foods was far greater in t he class surve y, at 91%, than the field stud y of onl y 66%. The nex t questi on then att empt ed to determine if (and b y what amount) people wo uld be wil li ng to pa y for l ocal food. Inte resti n gl y, alt hough most people in the previous questi on support the idea of pur cha sing local foods the majorit y of those in the field stud y, 52% , would not be wil li ng to pa y mor e for it compar ed to onl y 5% from the class surve y. These result s are ver y useful as th e y concu r wit h last ye ar 's result s and emphasiz e the im portance of pri ce wh e n making food s electi ons . 9 The result s from questi o n 10, summariz ed in Appendix 8 table 11, indi cate strong consum er interest in fair trade produ cts.  In the fie ld surve y, th e majorit y of respondents (48% ) chose ‘maybe’ when asked if t he y were int er ested in bu yin g fair tr ade prod ucts, foll owed closel y  19  by 34% that chose ‘yes’.  Results from the class survey indicated that an overwhelming majority of respondents, 86%, are int erested in bu yin g fair t rade produ cts compar ed t o onl y 34% of re spondents from the fiel d surve y. This questi on helped us to determine tha t despit e the curr ent lack of consum e r knowle dge su rroundin g fai r trad e products, with promot ion and educ ati on campai gns; there m a y be a strong m arket dem and for addit ional fair tr ade ite ms on the UBC campus . Que sti on 11 and 12, summariz ed in Appendix 8 table 12 and 13, att empt ed to determine current pur chasin g beh av iors of fair tr ade produ cts b y consum ers on the UBC campus . Howeve r, 7 out of 44 of respondent s in the field surve y left t his questi on blank indicati ng that chan ges ma y be nec essar y to the questi on content and desi gn. One potential problem we determi ned is that respondents we re ask ed whether the y pu rchas ed fair trade products to use at hom e but there was no distinct ‘yes’ or ‘no’ option available first leading respondent into the next part question. In both the tests, the main reason stated fo r not purc hasing fair trad e products was because most were not sur e which prod ucts are/a re not fair trade .  In qu esti on 12, summariz ed in table 13 of Appendix 8, respondents were asked how often the y requested fair trad e bev era ges at a co ffe e shop. The majority from the field and class survey, 45% and 41% respectively answered ‘never’.  This questi on suggests that eit her the majorit y of c onsum ers are not inter est ed in fair trad e or lack the aw aren ess or ed ucati on nec essar y to mak e decisi ons ac cordin gl y.   Result s from questi on 13, Appendix 8 table 14, indi cate that the majorit y of respondents from bot h surve ys might be int erested in pur cha si ng or ganic food even at h igher costs . From the field surve y 68% s aid either 'yes ' or 'm a ybe ' to pa yi n g more compar ed to a combi ned tot al of 91% withi n the class sur ve y. Organic fruit s and vegetables were th e most popular choice respondents in the field s urve y would be int er este d in bu yin g on campus . Howeve r, information  20  from this questi on indi cates that although the re is int erest in organic foods t here ma y not currentl y be a lar ge mark et demand on campus if the y wer e to cost more.    Questi ons 14 and 15, see k to determine int erest an d current pur chasin g beh aviors of fr ee -ran ge eggs, result s are located wit hin Appendix 8 tables 15 and 16. When respondents wer e asked if the y would be wil li ng to pa y mor e for fre e ran ge eggs, the result s from the field surve y were inconclusive as the percentages of people that answered ‘yes’, ‘maybe’, and ‘no’ were roughl y equal. Fu rther, for those wil li ng to pa y m ore, the majorit y would onl y be will in g to pa y up to $0.50 more, indi cati ng low demand for these products. Howev er, cl ass surve y result s indi cated that m ajorit y, 63%, would be wil li ng to pay mor e for fre e ran ge eggs and 73 % said the y would be will ing to pay up to 40 % more. Qu esti on 15, result s in Appendix 8 table 16, was sim il ar for both the field and class surve y. In both surve ys, the majorit y pur chased free -ran ge eggs ‘sometimes’. Common reasons not buying these eggs included expense and lack of knowledge of the dif fer e nce betw een free -ran ge and regular eggs. Questi on 16 att empt ed to determine what factors were most i mportant to consum ers when purchasin g foods.  Th e result s, found in Appendix 8 table 17, indi cate that 'price ' and 'qu ali t y' were most important in both the field and class sur ve y. Tho u gh in the class surve y, 'quali t y' was more important than 'pric e' wher e as respondents in the field surve y ranked t hem roughl y equal. This concurs with our col lea gues from Group 8 AGSC I 2005 that dete rmined that price is a lar ge determi ning factor when purchasin g foods. Foods that were 'p roduced withi n Britis h Col umbi a' were found to be least im portant in the field surve y while class respond ents rank thi s 4th (of 7), indi cati ng again that the gen eral consum er popula ti on on the UBC campus ma y not know the benefits associat ed with purchasin g locall y produ ced foods and th ere fore d o not prioriti z e local foods when makin g de cisi ons.   21    Questi on 17 asked respondents whether the y wou ld like to see more locall y produ ced, organic, and fair tr ade pr oducts avail able on the UBC campus . The result s, sum mariz ed in Appendix 8 table 18, showed that 50% of respond ents from the field stud y would like to see more of these products on campus yet 41% answered with ‘don’t know’. In contrast, 91% of the class surve y respondents indi cated the y would like to see more of thes e pro ducts avail able on campus and the remainin g 9% had left the qu esti on blank.  These result s suggest that althou gh consum ers ma y  not have all the information the y need to chan ge their cu rre nt purchasin g behaviours, ther e is an in terest in bu yin g from eco logicall y and so ciall y co nsci ous producers th at can be enhanc ed throu gh appropriate educ ati on an d promot ion.  Conclusion A ke y conc ept of the UBCFS P is to increase the sustainabil it y of the UBC food s ystem through re-loc ali z ati on. Consequentl y, our task was to revise surv e ys p rop osed b y coll ea gues over the past years and develop new questions that go beyond consumers’ willingness to purchase lo cal foods to d etermi ne cu rrent pur chasi ng beh aviours of thes e pr oducts. Furthe r, we developed questi ons to determi ne int erest in foods produced b y soci all y an d ecolo gicall y conscious produc ers.  Two surve ys wer e used in o ur pil ot test to determi ne the eff ecti veness of our questi ons along with surve y desi gn. The result ing questi onnair e, with appropriate modi ficati ons, can be use d in fall of 2006 for statis ti call y relevant result s to be present ed to our partners at UB C FS and AMSFB. This informatio n can then be us ed to make real chan ges on campus to help incre ase t he sust ainabili t y of the UBC food s ystem.  Recommendations: After admi nist erin g the pil ot test of our surve y an d int erpreti n g the result s, we have developed a se ries of rec omm endati ons for compl eti on of thi s surve y.    22  To rec eive statist icall y ac curate result s the surve y must have a rep resent ati ve sample of the tar get popul ati on. Consequentl y, we propos e using a str ati fied random s ampl ing method that is proporti onal to the vari ous market se gmentati on s outli ned in Appendix 1. To determi ne a repres entative sampl e siz e, it is important to determi ne the siz e of the tar ge t popul ati on. We recomm end usin g a samp le siz e of 1000 as thi s would give more ac curate re sult s. Further, thi s sampl e siz e is feasibl e gi ven the number of studen ts avail able in AGS C I 15 0 to distribut e the surve y. Howev er, fundin g to cov er the costs of thi s project is stil l inconclusi v e. If no fundr aisi ng efforts hav e be en ac com pli shed prior to fall 2006 we have two su ggesti ons to implement this surve y: 1 ) conta ct Kalev Hunt (Appendix 3) for information rega rdin g implementation of the surve y on WebCT or 2) dist ribute onl y 400 surve ys , as proposed b y Group 8, AGS C I 450 2005. The cost of 400 surv e ys would be $160, which co uld be cover ed b y the Agora comm it tee.     As stated in our discussion,  we also think that it would be valuable to dete r mi ne the cost differen ces b etween lo cal and non - l o cal foods thro ughout the se asons to determi ne if local foods are inde ed more ex pensive. This information coul d be included in the infor mative piece loc ated at the end of the surv e y. As also stated in our disc ussi on questi on 3 and 11 need to be reformatted.  In questi on 3, i t would been useful to emphasiz e that we want ed students to specif y which 'oth er ' plac es the y most often purchased foo ds from as most people onl y ch ecked th e box rather than provided a lo cati on. Ther efor e we su ggest ch an gin g the questi o n t o:  3) How man y times a week do you pu rch ase food on campus ?

To buy ‘locally produced foods’ means purchasing products that are grown within British C olum bia and have trav e led a limi ted dist ance to reach the consum er. Doin g so supports not onl y our province but also the indi vidual comm unit ies in which we live.  Bu yin g locall y gro wn and organic foods, as well as foods produced with animal and human welf are i n mind posi ti vel y contribut es to environme ntal and social sust ainabi li t y with additi onal econ omi c and healt h benefits.     Purchasing lo call y grow n foods benefits the envir onment and encour a ges a sust ainable food s ystem. B u yin g foo ds that have trav eled onl y a sho rt dist ance le ads to lower fossi l fuel emi ssi ons due to decre ased transportati on. In addit ion, locall y produc ed fo ods require less packa gin g, which reduc e s the amount of waste created.  Local foods also en hance food s ecurit y in the comm unit y providi ng a link betw een consum ers and produ cers.  Fur thermore, freshl y picked produc e ripen to perfe cti on, providi ng sup e rior t aste over those th at were pick ed gr een and traveled for thous and s of mil es in storage befo re re achin g the consum er 's table.    A typic al farm er receives onl y 10% of th e profit re turns on non -locall y pu rc hased foods while the remainin g 90% of the profit s go es towa r ds transportati on, pack a ging, and ma rketi n g. Conversel y, fa rmers can earn up to 37% mor e fro m sales at local farmers markets than from wholesalers du e to the eli mi nati on of transportati on, packa gin g and m arketi ng costs which in turn, decr eases pri ces fo r consum ers.  Fo r eve r y doll ar spent on locall y gro wn foods, three doll ars are put ba ck int o the local econom y.  Mo re over, putti ng mone y back int o the comm unit y supports the gro wth of small businesses, increas e s the number of local job s, and raises pr op ert y values.  Bu yi n g or ganic foods hel ps to support the growth of small -scale farms that often have diverse crops th at are rot ated re gula rl y to maint ain soi l healt h, and use limi ted chemi cals inputs .  Organic agriculture prote cts the healt h of the plan et by reducin g the ov erall ex posure to toxic chemi ca ls from s ynthetic pesti cides that can end up in the ground, air, wat e r and food suppl y thus sim ult aneousl y protecti ng hum an healt h.
