Local & Sustainable
A Sustainable Operation
Sustainable dining in all of its dimensions is a critical component of Columbia University’s environmental initiatives. The Columbia Dining team is a strong advocate of environmental and resource management.
Sustainable practices drive our purchasing decisions, menu development, and physical operations. We order from local businesses and farms, provide a wide range of daily vegan and vegetarian options, and prioritize recycling and reuse.
