Above, an apple harvested at Kentland Farm. The majority of the food harvested at the Dining Services Farm at Kentland Farm is served in our dining centers on campus. This helps dining services achieve its goal of promoting sustainable dining and food systems at Virginia Tech.
At Virginia Tech Dining Services, we're serious about sustainability. As part of our Guiding Principles, we have pledged to promote a sustainable dining and food system, both at Virginia Tech and within the greater community.
How are we supporting sustainability efforts on campus? In Dining Services, we are working hard to increase our sourcing of local and sustainable products in our dining centers, and much of the produce you see in the dining centers is grown on campus at the Dining Services Farm. We’re also committed to recycling and composting and we have an innovative “reusable to-go” program in place in many of our dining centers.
We believe in creating a more sustainable VT. You can read more about our efforts by clicking on the links on the sidebar, or by visiting our sustainable dining blog. You can also find us on social media; “like” sustainable dining at Virginia Tech on Facebook, or find us on Twitter and Instagram. Still have questions? Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
