A brief description of the sustainable food and beverage purchasing program:
Housing & Dining Services purchases all of our sliced breads and dairy products from local sources. Our sliced breads come from Earthgrains/Sara Lee located in Fort Collins. All dairy products are provided to us by Robinson Dairy in Denver. Our milk is supplied by dairy farms that are located within 150 miles of CSU. Our bagels are supplied by Gib’s Bagels in Fort Collins, our coffee from Vail Mountain Coffee in Minturn, CO; our biodegradable/compostable carryout products from Eco-Products in Boulder, CO and our soups from Spoons in Fort Collins. Housing & Dining Services has purchased nearly $1 million in locally grown and processed foods.
Additionally, our produce specifications require vendors to bid and supply local and organic produce when available and reasonably priced.
