Healthy Eating


Ohio University Culinary Services is committed to offering healthy food at every meal. Our team prepares approximately 3.8 million meals per year and serve a diverse population of students, faculty, staff and university guests. Our philosophy is based upon "choice dining," as we offer a wide variety of freshly-prepared foods daily. Many of these foods are healthy; however, it is ultimately up to our guests to select their preference of items and quantities.

 

Weekly menus are available to assist your meal planning. Menu information is available online in Dining Court/Hall lobbies, various Residence Halls' bulletin boards and on CATVision, OHIO's campus television network.
