At Virginia Tech Dining Services, we're serious about sustainability.

As part of our Guiding Principles, we have pledged to promote a sustainable dining and food system, both at Virginia Tech and within the greater community.

How are we supporting sustainability efforts on campus? In Dining Services we are working hard to increase sourcing of local and sustainable products in our dining centers. We’re also committed to recycling and composting, and we have an innovative “reusable to-go” program available in many of our dining centers.

We believe in creating a  more sustainable Virginia Tech. You can read more about our efforts by clicking on the links on the sidebar, or by visiting our Twitter. Still have questions? Feel free to email us at
