Sustainable Food

Our Vision: The College of Saint Benedict strives to provide flavorful, nutritious food that was produced with minimal environmental impact. Specifically, we strive to:

  1. Increase the purchase of locally and sustainably produced food by 2% annually (based on dollars spent).
  2. Decrease the amount of food waste generated by 2% annually (by weight).
  3. Increase student awareness of the origins of their food and the environmental, social and economic impacts of choice.
