Entering the university marks the lives of most young people starting their independent lives. Most of them put in the background the concern with food and consume foods that are quicker and simpler to make, which, as a rule, reflect the more caloric dishes. The project Fava is a project for food education, whose ambition is to contribute to improving nutrition in the academic community and instilling concerns about the theme. A system and an identity that will allow the academic community to be closer to the periphery products in the city, which sells raw or confectioned food.

In order to achieve that Several field investigations and contacts were conducted with the communities in which it was intended to be involved. This effort allowed to understand the role of each one of the actors in the project. For this, the project studied the network of actors and developed conceptual maps, diagrams, and motivational matrix.
