Freight Farms provides today’s modern corporate, university, or high school campus the opportunity to seamlessly integrate sustainable food production into current operations to make high-quality, local food a staple of the campus culture. Each Leafy Green Machine offers a unique flexibility to create tailored programs to meet the specific needs of each campus. The LGM becomes a powerful tool for promoting health and wellness, sustainability and innovation while fostering a culture of social responsibility.

 
 
 

1

Demonstrate a commitment to sustainability by growing food directly on campus year-round.

 

2

Promote student and employee health and wellness by serving produce harvested just hours before consumption.

3

Bring transparency to operations
and educate students and employees on the journey their food takes from farm to table.

 
 
 
The introduction of the technology not only helps reinforce our ongoing sustainability efforts, but also encourages and inspires students to be more sustainable.
— James O’Connor, Director of Sustainability and Transportation Operations at Stony Brook University
The Farm to Table program at Google is about engaging Googlers and our partners about where food comes from, how it’s grown, and why that matters.
