About Food at Evergreen
Currently, dining services on campus are provided by a contracted food service provider, Aramark. The current food contract is administered by the Director of Residential and Dining Services. Through a food advisory committee (comprised of students, faculty, and staff) and several quarterly surveys, feedback is provided to the manager of dining services and the Director of Residential and Dining Services. This feedback is used to continue to improve food quality and food sourcing. The college set a goal to purchase 40% local and organic products by 2010 and Dining Services was able to achieve this goal and continues to work to improve sustainability efforts. Currently, some of the food is grown on campus at our own wonderful Organic Farm.
In addition to the contracted food service on campus there is also a student run cafe called the Flaming Eggplant.
