Pre-consumer food waste from commissary preparation operations is redirected from compost collection and given to a local farm (The Golden Hoof) to be used as animal feed.
A commercial sized biodigester has been installed to treat compost in the new Village Dining Center. The process results in an eco-friendly product that is safely re-added to the waste-water supply.
Community garden plots are available to the residents in our Graduate & Family Housing communities so they can grow and share freshly grown produce.
Sea to Table
We purchase through the Sea To Table program, which sources wild, domestic seafood that is sustainably harvested. This practice helps prevent overfishing and promotes the long-term vitality of harvested species and the well-being of the oceans.
Offer an ever-growing selection of organic, natural and local products in all of our dining operations. We also support the university Fair Food Statement of Values.
Menus of Change
Menus of Change is an initiative that incorporates health and sustainability into menu and recipe development and creates business strategies that integrate both environmental and nutrition science.
