Housing and Food Services is committed to various sustainability efforts, especially in sourcing our food from local, fair and humane vendors. We believe in supporting the local community and knowing exactly what goes in to each meal. Our goal is for 25 percent of total food purchases to be local. We have committed to the Real Food Challenge, a national initiative, as a further commitment to these efforts.
We have formed relationships with many vendors in Oklahoma and have even started our own initiatives to grow some of our own produce. Collaborating with these vendors, Housing and Food Services hosts "Made in Oklahoma" meals and showcase events annually. At these, students can learn about where campus food comes from and meet the people behind it.
