Campus Initiatives

As a guest, it is easy to make smart environmental choices when you dine at a Sodexo café. We know today's college students want to do the right thing for the planet and we also understand you lead busy lives, so your Sodexo chefs and managers do a lot of the work for you behind the scenes.

From purchasing local seasonal produce whenever possible to reducing inorganic and organic waste, your campus team is dedicated to providing you with an exceptional dining experience that is good for you and good for the planet.

We Compost

In the Fall of 2019, composting began at the Marketplace and Food on Demand. Composting has since expanded to Moe’s and WoW Café.

In 2020, the Marketplace composted 65,445 pounds of food waste. This is equal to 36,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, 1,870 gallons of gasoline burnt, and 2.02 million smart phones charged! Each semester we donate surplus food to Haven’s Harvest, a local organization we partner with to help feed community members in need.
