Food & Dining

Every bite taken is an opportunity to participate in a food system that does more than just fill our bellies, but this requires a fundamentally different approach from seed to plate and beyond. Whether its choosing to serve sustainable meals, conserving water and energy in production and cleaning, or reducing post-consumer wastes, we can improve our environmental impact every day. Students drive this process by voicing their opinion in dining surveys, via feedback cards, by becoming part of the Food Committee, or participating in research to understand what we are are really consuming at UWO. 

What does sustainable food include?

  • Support of local farmers, bakers, roasters, processors, etc
  • Ecologically sound
  • Humanely raised animal products
  • Worker's rights are respected, living wages are paid on time, and working conditions are safe

See our Campus Sustainability Plan to find out what we've accomplished so far and what we are still working on in our campus food system.
