All of next week, D2 dining facility will be serving local, organic broccoli. The fresh veggies are from Appalachian Harvest farmers’ cooperative based out of Southwestern Virginia. Appalachian Harvest (a program out of non-profit Appalachian Sustainable Development) works to fortify the region’s food system with healthy, nutritious, organic foods. This broccoli will also be served at Farms & Fields, which serves local, organic broccoli every time it is served during harvest season (and organic when local is not available). This broccoli will be intermixed with the broccoli already coming in at this time of year from the Dining Services Garden at Kentland Farm.
This special week is part of our commitment to bring in local, organic, and/or sustainable food whenever we are able at Virginia Tech Dining Services. We are committed to serving you safe, nutritious, and environmentally conscious food.
