Our chefs take pride in using ingredients from 25 local farms to prepare delicious recipes from scratch. All students who live on campus choose one of five residential meal plans that let you eat the way that’s right for you. University Dining locations are also open to the campus community and accept Ducks Dine On, cash and credit cards.
In addition to sourcing food from local farms, we do our best to make sure our entire dining operation is sustainable.
Our disposables such as coffee cups, service ware, drink cups, plates, and vegetable scraps are turned into rich soil through our composting program. We compost more than 130 tons of waste each year! This waste that would otherwise be sent to a landfill is used in gardens throughout our local area. In addition, all of our spent fryer oil is converted into biodiesel fuels through a local partnership.
All of our dining locations have water refill stations or water spouts on soda dispensers. We encourage students to use refillable coffee mugs—we even reward you with our Choose to Reuse program. Bring your refillable mug in nine times and the tenth drink is on us.
