Real Food Challenge

RFC LogoIn Spring 2014, Denver Dining became a signatory of DU’s Real Food Challenge Commitment to purchase 20% local, fair, ecologically sound or humane food, what is called ‘Real Food’, by 2020. This commitment became a reality through the collaboration between DU’s Center for Sustainability, Students for Sustainable Food, Denver Dining by Sodexo and University of Denver’s Administration. Although having 20% Real Food by 2020 is an important goal for Denver Dining, we want to bring you Real Food Now! That is why it’s Denver Dining’s goal is to reach 12% Real Food by the end of the 2015/2016 school year! Learn more about the result of the real food challenge here.
To see and taste what we are talking about, look for the Real Food Label throughout the Dining Halls 

We believe that Pioneers care about where their food comes and how it is prepared. Centennial Dining Hall is dedicated to preparing food you can feel good about, featuring responsibly sourced ingredients within our classic comfort foods to international dishes. Many of our responsibly sourced ingredients are classified as ‘real’ food that is local, fair, humane and/or ecologically sound.  Continually increasing our use of ‘real’ food is part of our Real Food Challenge Commitment

1.    Boulder Organic Ice Cream
