UFV is a part of the Feed BC program. Feed BC works with institutions, stakeholders and partners across the food service supply chain to increase the use of B.C. foods in B.C. government supported institutions, facilities, programs and services. Feed BC’s three inclusive partnership streams enable flexibility to demonstrate partner commitment and support to increasing B.C. foods in ways that best reflect institutional values, priorities and practices. The Feed BC program includes minimum goals and standards to support B.C. food procurement, B.C. food definitions and targets, B.C. food tracking methodology, and other procurement tools and resources to assist partners with their Feed BC local food work. Local Food Dana Hospitality at the Cascades Cafe sources local products The Fraser Valley boasts some of the most fertile farmland in the world, close to transportation routes and major urban centers.

Where the Cascades Cafe food comes from: - Bread comes from Monte Cristo Bakery in Delta. - Pork products come from Britco in Langley and Johnston’s in Chilliwack. - Potatoes, potato chips, cabbage, fennel, beans and corn are grown in the Fraser Valley. - Cranberries come from Richmond. - Beef is a local product, locally processed. - Fresh dairy products originate at Fraser Valley farms. - Chicken comes from small family-run businesses in Hallmark and Sunrise Poultry (Langley). - Salmon is always BC wild-caught, and Oceanwise certified - All seafood is MSC certified. Dana Hospitality at Cascades Cafe makes most things in-house with wholesome, natural ingredients: dressings, soups, salads, sandwiches, entrees, stir-fries, snacks and pastries. They avoid branded, processed foods wherever possible and provide you healthy alternatives. https://www.ufv.ca/dining/local-food/
