Sustainable Food Policy
Lancaster University’s Food & Dining team is committed to delivering an exciting variety of food with passion and purpose to enhance the student, staff and visitor experience. We offer food that is tasty, sustainable and affordable to the university community, focusing on healthy and nutritionally balanced meals. Our team focus on seasonal menus for catered accommodation, conferencing and events using fresh, locally-sourced produce. Following the growing trend in plant-based menus and customer desire for information on the provenance of their food, fresh ingredients are sourced from local suppliers (where possible) maximising the quality produce Lancashire has to offer. We work closely with all our suppliers to improve the sustainability and reduction of packaging used.
What we do
These are some of the existing food policies. We are constantly looking for ways to be more sustainable and reduce plastic use.
We are Allergy Aware, holding an Allergy UK Accreditation across all our outlets and services on campus. Menus are also provided for all dietary and most cultural needs across the university.
