A brief description of the sustainable food and beverage purchasing program:

Our FarmSource program is an initiative to find and partner with some of the finest local growers and producers. Most of our farmers are within a 125-mile radius of campus. By working with local producers such as Homestead Creamery, Crown Orchards, Mr. J’s Bagels and Deli and Greenberry’s Coffee we are able to enhance the freshness and quality of our product offerings without compromising our commitment to food safety, all while supporting and strengthening the local agricultural community.
