UC Davis Dining Services food preparation methods limit the impact of processing to extend greater convenience, using fewer resources, than traditional grocery-store bought products. These practices foster a more sustainable food system.

Practices and strategies that will have a lasting impact include:

  • Canola and olive basked cooking oils
  • Vegan and Vegetarian options at all meals
  • Nutrition and allergen information available on all food we serve
  • All food sources must pass rigorous food safety inspection
  • Fresh fruit program encourages guests to take a piece of fruit instead of a dessert
  • Healthier beverage options - infused waters, fresh brewed ice tea, sparkling water, hot teas
  • Whole grains available at every meal
  • Lean proteins available at every meal
  • Natural peanut butters standard


Promoting Health and Wellness

Promotion of health and wellness in the Resident Dining Rooms is essential to encourage students and guests to make healthier choices in the dining rooms and on their own.

In order to help guide students on their wellness journey, UC Davis Dining Services actively promotes and provides the following:

  • Clear labels for each menu item detailing calories, fat, and allergens
  • Health and nutrient indicators through the Happy Healthy Apple program to encourage students and guests to choose 'healthier' menu items more often
  • Providing vegan and vegetarian options at each meal
  • Dietitian counseling and services available to all students
  • Accommodation for any special dietary need - including but not limited to soy, dairy and gluten intolerance, Kosher and vegan/vegetarian

UC Davis Dining Services achieved national recognition for our efforts to provide vegan-friendly campus dining. We were ranked in the top 10 for Most Vegan-Friendly Large American University.
