Food

How food is grown and raised, processed, transported, prepared, and disposed of has environmental, social, and financial implications. Yale Dining is committed to offering delicious, healthy food that is carefully sourced and prepared. To be qualified as “sustainable,” food served in the Yale Dining Halls must meet at least one of four criteria: local, eco-sensitive, humane, fair. Learn more at the Yale Dining website

Food is a sustainability issue that everyone can relate to. Whether your interests are in health, cultural traditions, and environmental impacts, the food system provides many opportunities to explore sustainability challenges.

The Yale Sustainable Food Project manages an organic farm on campus and runs diverse programs that support exploration and academic inquiry related to food and agriculture. For more information, please visit the Yale Sustainable Food Project website.
