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.

Food Recovery Network

The Food Recovery Network unites students on college campuses to fight food waste and hunger by recovering perishable food that would otherwise go to waste from their campuses and communities and donating it to people in need. The Food Recovery Network is the largest student movement against food waste and hunger and have recovered and donated more than 2 million pounds of food that otherwise would have gone to waste. That's more than 1.8 million meals that's gone to those in need. Our food goes to the Lantern house in Ogden, UT and the Weber Cares Pantry in the Stewart Library.

Choose to Reuse

At The Den, the 'Choose to Reuse' program has been implemented, which will bring reusable takeout containers to dining hall. The “Choose to Reuse” plastic to-go boxes are sealable and designed to be carried around without leaking. The cost is only $5.00. When the used, rinsed out containers are returned to the dining hall, the used boxes will be cleaned, sterilized, and put back into circulation. *Due to Covid-19, this program has been suspended.
