Sustainability in our food system starts at production. You can try your hand at growing your own crops in our campus garden or listen to the buzzing of honey being made in our apiaries!
Consistent access to nutritious food is a necessary part of being a successful, healthy student. Should you experience an unanticipated hardship, UB Blue Table can help connect you to groceries.
UB Campus Dining and Shops and 3 Pillars catering compost all kitchen scraps, pre-consumer and catering food waste. UB Campus Dining and Shops has used an Eco-Smart food dehydrator to help manage food waste since 2009. In 2016, UB began working with a Natural Upcycling which operates an anaerobic digestor. When UB's Eco-Smart machine is at capacity, food waste is now diverted to "feed" an anaerobic digestor.
Did you order too much food for your event? Post it to UB Food Rescue. This group is dedicated to redistributing prepared foods, preventing food waste, and tackling food insecurity at University at Buffalo. Please post and share free food from events and meetings that is available to students, faculty, and staff that find themselves in need of food (leftover or otherwise!).
Please ensure that you fully read and understand the Group Rules before participating in this group's activities. Send the administers a message if you have any questions or concerns.
