OP-7: Low Impact Dining
UW-W Dining Services in Partnership with Chartwells
Percentage of total dining services food purchases comprised of conventionally produced animal products:
University of Wisconsin-Whitewater requested that AASHE Staff correct a mistake in this reporting field for the reason specified below.Previous Value: 0 None
Explanation: We intended to claim no credit for this part of the question because we don't have a methodology to track it. Therefore, without a methodology I guess we have to say that 100% of our animal products are conventionally sourced. I'd argue that this question is poorly worded and should read: "Percentage of total dining services food purchases comprised of organically produced animal products." Aren't the rest of the questions positively worded?
A brief description of the methodology used to track/inventory expenditures on animal products:
Currently, a methodology has not been established to distinguish sourcing for all animal products to accurately calculate a percentage to claim points for this portion of the credit.
Does the institution offer diverse, complete-protein vegan dining options at all meals in at least one dining facility on campus?:
Does the institution provide labels and/or signage that distinguishes between vegan, vegetarian (not vegan), and other items?:
Are the vegan options accessible to all members of the campus community?:
A brief description of the vegan dining program, including availability, sample menus, signage and any promotional activities (e.g. “Meatless Mondays”):
