Food Waste

We Love Food too Much to Waste it

At Columbia Dining we believe that food waste is avoidable and unnecessary. The team makes food to order to avoid over-production and therefore, create less waste. If we do cook more food than is consumed, we are required by the Department of Health guidelines to throw away any food that has been prepared and displayed in our serveries. However, all of our unserved leftovers are donated to a local food pantry near campus.
