UMass Dining sources locally year round, serving over 6 million meals through sustainable menus, smaller portions and employing a “small plate, big flavor” philosophy all in the aim of supporting the New England Food System in order to reduce food waste.
Our purchasing practices allow us to source 30% of produce locally, with $2.4 million spent in Massachusetts and $5.4 million in New England.
By educating students on the importance of protecting the longevity of our environment, we instill them with sustainable eating practices, which is why our average consumer food waste is less than half of the national average. Our sustainable practices not only benefit our campus, but our global community as a whole.
You can find UMass Dining at every corner of campus. With four dining commons, over 20 retail cafes, Kosher and Halal options, two food trucks, the Bakeshop, UMass Catering, concessions, and the University Club, we welcome you to all that the UMass Dining experience has to offer. It will be a pleasure serving you.
