According to Zheng Shujian, Deputy Director of Logistic Affairs & Security Department, the foodstuffs used by Catering Center, including rice, flour, oil and seasonings had been exhibited on site to reassure students about having meals at students’ canteen. Students also learned basic knowledge of food safety to differentiate the products with no name, no address, no production and sanitation license code. After the activity, many student representatives expressed their understanding of food safety and food security. As students of an agricultural university, they should be more aware of the hard work concerning agriculture, rural areas and farmers. They determined to start from themselves to enhance public awareness of saving food, effectively cultivate thrifty habits and foster a social environment where waste is shameful and thriftiness is applaudable.
