Sustainability

University Catering and Conferences is proud to offer sustainable options for any event that we cater. We can work with you to reduce waste and purchase local products.

Make an impact with little or no additional cost:

  • Order water and beverages in reusable pitchers instead of individual bottles.

  • Request local food. We work with a number of local producers who can supply us with a bounty of fresh, local ingredients.
  • Request organic food. We would be happy to create an all-organic menu for your event.
  • Instead of paper plates and napkins, order china service.

Current sustainability efforts by University Catering:

  • Leftover Textover program.
  • Eggs from hens raised in cage-free environments are available.
  • Locally grown Sheppard’s Grain flour from wheat that is direct-tilled in a sustainable manner.
  • Natural beef from Northwest ranchers who raise Angus beef on a 100% vegetarian diet without added hormones or antibiotics is available.
  • Milk from local dairies with no antibiotics or bovine growth hormones.
  • Unused food is donated daily to Food for Lane County for families in need.
  • Unused vegetable scraps are composted.
  • Biodiesel fuel is created from our spent fryer oils.
