Eating Sustainably
Conscious decisions for eating are a great way to practice sustainability.
What food you buy and consume can reflect your morals and make a
difference.

Cafeteria Dining
Chartwells purchases about 12% of the dining hall food from local
sources, including meat and vegetables from our own Cerridwen
Farm. This percentage is one that they are looking to increase, but
they need the support of students.
In 2010, Green Mountain students
Rebecca Teller and Lisa Wilson
spoke up about their desire to have
more local food. After submitting a
$20,000 Student Campus Greening
Fund (SCGF) grant that was ap-
proved, a larger freezer was bought
for Chartwells to store more local
produce.
In 2012, students Harrison Rhodes, Mary Perotti,
and Michael Sharry of Center of the Plate club
submitted a fall grant to SCGF for $10,000 to
fund a Local Food Sourcing Position. The student
body voted and the grant was approved. The
position duties include sourcing local foods for
Charwells that can be purchased, helping draft
and implement a new meat purchasing policy,
and implementing a diet dashboard to track
sourcing and consumption in the dining hall.
Consider joining Center of the Plate Club if you are interested in getting
Chartwells to source more food locally.
