Green University

More than food for thought.

for you.   for your students.   for life.

The goal of college dining services is more than to provide meals for students, it is to serve food on campus that is healthy, fresh and delicious, and that is produced in a just and sustainable manner. Sustainability is more than just recycling, it is about the entire process of preparing and serving meals. From lighting and dishes to food sources and equipment, sustainability requires time, thought, and dedication.


Save money…and the environment…

True, the best time and biggest window for making an impact with equipment is a major renovation or new build, but there are numerous opportunities as you look around the kitchen to make an impact.

 

Three simple steps to become more energy efficient:

  • Avoid “obvious” energy leaks (ie leaky faucets & equipment that’s on longer than necessary)
  • Equipment/Product Matching (for example, are you using a batch cooker to produce a-la-carte items?)
  • Operator Training (proper training on operation & energy-saving techniques will save a lot of energy& money!)
