Food & Dining

State Quad Renovation

Food and Dining is a central component of our sustainability efforts on campus. Whether it is our vegetarian and vegan dining options, or our growing inclusion of local foods into the menu, sustainability is integrated into our food culture.

Local Food

Buying local produce helps ensure the freshness of our food, boosts the local economy, and creates connection with the community. In recognition of these facts, UAS and Sodexo have set a goal to purchase 25% of food for our dining halls from local suppliers. Read about the UAlbany Dining Team's outstanding efforts to improve the sustainability on campus.

Currently 30% of the food on campus comes from local sources!
