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 our sourcing of local and sustainable products in our dining centers, and much of the produce you see in the dining centers is  grown on campus at the Dining Services Farm. We’re also committed to recycling and composting, and we have an innovative “reusable to-go” program in place in many of our dining centers.

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