Dining Services is committed to operating sustainably. We are always working to minimize the university's impact on the environment by reducing waste and creating meals from fresh, locally grown foods. Many of our cafes, markets, cafeterias and dining halls are Green Spaces Certified.

Our goal is to incorporate sustainable practices in all aspects of food purchasing, food preparation and waste disposal.

Fair Trade

We are proud to support UAlberta in its Fair Trade Campus designation. Look for fair trade certified food items (like coffee, tea and chocolate bars) in the Lister dining hall, CAB Urban Market, Engrained, and Euromarket. Use our locations map to find each establishment and its hours of operation.

Sustainable Food Working Group

Energy Management and Sustainable Operations chairs the Sustainable Food Working Group. This group explores ways to create a sustainable food system at the university.
