A brief description of the sustainable food and beverage purchasing program:
Housing and Dining Services is committed to supporting Fair Trade products. All of UC San Diego’s dining locations offer exclusively Fair Trade coffee, tea and sugar, and at least one Fair Trade choice of ice cream and chocolate.
Organic and local options are also provided in all dining halls throughout the UC San Diego campus. For example, all eggs purchased on campus are cage free and some fruits and vegetables are purchased at the Wednesday Farmer's Market located outside the campus’s Roots Cafe.
