Augustana Dining Services "Farm2Fork" Program is an exciting opportunity for us to invest in the health of our community, helping to build regional and local food systems.
Local farms and ranches provide communities with a direct and reliable food source, thereby making consumers less dependent on food sources that are thousands of miles away.
Our program utilizes local and regional foods through our retail operations at the Westerlin and College Center dining centers, Brew by the Slough and C-Store operations.
Dining has partnered with Wesley Acres to recycle used fryer oil which they convert to bio-diesel to heat their green houses to extend the growing season and run farm equipment. We also compost all pre and post consumer food waste.
