Data source(s) and notes about the submission:
Healthy lifestyle/dining web page: http://www.uwrf.edu/Dining/HealthyLifestyle/Index.cfm The information provided in this section is from the 2014 calendar year. In May 2015, UWRF's food service provider changed from Sodexo to Chartwells. Getting information from two vendors during a transition was difficult so we are reporting the last full year (2014) under one vendor, Sodexo. The 2016 calendar year will be reported next year with information provided from Chartwells.
