We want to make it easier for you to live sustainably at UB! One way that you, as the consumer, can help make UB and the Buffalo region more sustainble is through your food choices. Use this sustainable food guide to make sustainable choices when you are dining at UB. 

Even choosing one sustainable meal a day can make an impact and help save the environment. 

All items purchased by UB dining have been reviewed and categorized into four pillars of sustainability: Manufacturer/Local, Environmental Sustainability, Animal Welfare, and Nutrition. These metrics were chosen based on the great work of the Good Food Purchasing Program from the Center for Good Food Purchasing.

It is important to note that not every food offered on our campus has been rated. The items below are examples of the foods that had the most information available for assessment.
