All around our campus cafés and eateries you will see our Farm to Campus Fresh posters. On our Food Services employees new shirt and hat you will see our Farm to Campus Fresh seal. You will notice our menu boards changing, new descriptions of menu items ‘local’, ‘house made’, ‘from scratch’ being added. This is all for you, our customer – our guest!
We care about the food we create. Where does it comes from? How far has it traveled? Who are the farmers growing the produce? We care about your food choices. Do we have plant-forward options in all our units? Can you easily find Halal options?
UW Food Services has developed Farm to Campus Fresh – an easy way to learn more about where our food comes from and how it is prepared.
