As a busy college student, you want to eat well. With nutritious on-campus meals, cooking workshops and more, we’re here to help you feel your best.
UB’s Mall Market shuttle offers weekly trips to local food stores. To save money, plan ahead. Make a shopping list, check for sales, choose seasonal food, and eat before you go!
Another option is local farmers markets and CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture). Health Promotion partners with a local farm to bring fresh, seasonal fruits & vegetables to campus. June through October, you can buy a share each week, or hold delivery when needed. A limited amount of free produce is given to students on Thursdays from 2-4 on North Campus as well. Order here.
If you need food support, visit the Food Support page for more information on Blue Table and to place an order. Students may also be eligible for SNAP food benefits; contact Health Promotion for assistance.
Meet with UB’s registered dietitian to assess your current lifestyle and get individual nutrition counseling. We offer guidance on nutrition-related medical concerns, as well as provide support regarding eating on campus, body image, saving money on food and more. We promote a non-diet approach to eating that encourages self-compassion, diverse foods and body acceptance. We seek to encourage eating well and enjoying an active lifestyle.

If you or someone you know has an eating disorder — including anorexia or bulimia — we have an Eating Disorders Team that can offer the counseling, medical care and nutritional support you need.
At UB, you can discover new foods, take a nutrition class, learn how to cook and join a community supported agriculture (CSA) program.
