Culinary Services, one of the largest self-operated, non-franchised college dining services in the nation, takes food waste and recycling very seriously. Each of our campus venues abides by the standards and initiatives set forth by Ohio University and the Office of Sustainability.
We also place an emphasis on purchasing local food items whenever our supply demands can be accommodated; many of the local items that we serve are in part a result of our growing association with many local connections that we maintain, and we’re always looking to cultivate new partnerships.
Some of our local partners include:
We collaborate with the Office of Sustainability to help educate students regarding food waste and how they can help to further decrease wasted food.
Recent renovations have also focused on reducing food waste from the production end:
Currently 98% of all baked goods served at Ohio University are baked on campus from scratch
Ohio University is home to the largest in-vessel composting system of any college or university in the nation.
Culinary Services is always looking for new ways to increase our sustainability. We also value student input!
Our recent reusable bags initiative, in which all 2013-2014 residential students on a meal plan were provided with a reusable bag free of charge, was borne out of CSDC
We are always looking for energetic students who are interested in discussing/furthering our on-campus sustainability efforts!
The Culinary Services Development Committee (CSDC) is a student-led organization dedicated to discussing a wide range of culinary-related topics. Meetings are monthly during the school year.
