Sustainability and Social Responsibility

The dining halls at Oberlin College do more than feed students and staff. Through progressive procurement policies, including an extensive Farm to Fork program, sustainable seafood principles, animal proteins free of human-therapeutic growth hormones and antibiotics, socially-aligned coffee choices and cage-free eggs, Oberlin College and Bon Appétit Management Company provide nutritious meals that invest in nearby farms, dairies, ranches and aquaculture operations, preserve the bounty of our oceans, lakes and fields so they can feed future generations, and provide sufficient incomes to food producers so they can live with dignity. Environmentally-conscious resource initiatives help prevent waste and preserve our natural resources.

The CDS Recyclers and RCT publish the Little Green Book (PDF): A Guide to Sustainable Living at Oberlin College.
