Food and Community Garden

Weber State University works to make every part of food use on campus sustainable. From sustainable sourcing to composting and reduced food waste, WSU provides sustainable food services for healthy people and a healthy environment.

What We've Done

  • The WSU chapter of Food Recovery Network allows student volunteers to transport uneaten food, which would have been wasted, to a local homeless shelter, reducing food waste and helping those in need.
  • Weber Dining and Green Department Teams compost all waste trimmings into an industrial earth bin outside of the Shepherd Union building.
  • Sodexo, WSU's food provider, sources as much food as possible from local businesses and takes advantage of fresh fruits and vegetables naturally in season here in the west.

What You Can Do

  • Buy local! Buying locally-produced food cuts shipping costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Support local businesses and get fresher, healthier food.
  • Eat less meat and eat more plant-based foods to help improve your health and the environment. WSU offers meatless menu options every Monday in the Wildcat Room restaurant to promote healthy and sustainable eating on campus. 
  • Grow your own food in a home or community garden to save money on native seasonal fruits and vegetables. Want to learn how to garden in a safe and easy environment? Take short classes on composting, gardening, or plant care, offered at Weber's new Community Garden. This garden supplies fresh produce to the Weber Cares Food Pantry.
