What We're Doing

We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations. Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:

Check Local Purchasing: Did you know Dining Services sources food from many local farmers, growers and distributors? The list changes throughout the year depending on seasonality and availability. However, here is a sampling of a few of our partners:
  • J Kings Food Service Professionals
  • Sid Wainer
  • Bartlett Dairy
  • Rockland Bakery

Check Recycling: Dining Services recycles from all dining locations across campus. We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint. Look for signs in our locations for information on where to put your recyclables.

Check Fryer Oil Recycling: One hundred percent of dining services used fryer oil is recycled.

Check Trayless Dining: Both Winnick and Blackbird Café are trayless.

Check Recycled Content Paper: All cardboard is now recycled in the new recycling bins.
