Bon Appétit, Hamilton College's dining service, and the company's managers are always looking for ways to decrease their environmental footprint.
Campus customers enjoy produce from local farms, and vegan and vegetarian selections. Bon Appetit uses biodegradable paper and cleaning products that are not harmful to the environment.
Bon Appétit is committed to buying locally as much as possible. An initiative called "Farm to Fork" seeks to purchase seasonal and regional ingredients from within a 150-mile radius of each dining hall. Items such as fruits, vegetables, poultry, and milk are all purchased with health and the environment in mind.
