What’s the one aspect of student life is a top priority for most students on nearly every college campus? The food. At Vassar, students are highly involved in the dining program through the Food Committee, a student advisory committee that gives Campus Dining a lot of input about what students want (and don’t want). Reciprocally, Campus Dining listens, and they go above-and-beyond to make the campus dining experience as un-institutional as possible. Working together, they ensure that students are getting quality food in a variety of locations around campus, and that all dietary restrictions are met.
For example, several years ago, Campus Dining initiated a farm-to-college pilot program to bring fresh, locally grown food to the college — cage-free eggs, hormone-free milk from Hudson Valley cows, and fresh produce. More recently, students were involved in the selection of a new dining partner, Bon Appétit Management Company and their transformation of campus dining.
