We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations.
Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:
Did you know Temple Culinary Services sources food from many local farmers, growers, and distributors? Our procurement decisions change throughout the year depending on seasonality and availability for the freshest and best ingredients.
We partner with local organizations such as The Common Market to bring you local produce. Supporting local networks of farms encourages sustainable agriculture and strengthens communities and small businesses. Reducing travel also contributes to less greenhouse gas emissions, making local foods more sustainable.
Look for seasonal recipes in our residential dining hall menus that bring you delicious, fresh, and environmentally-friendly nutrition.
