UNC Dining reaches sustainable food goal early

Interns for CDS used the “real food calculator” to audit the dining services’ purchases.

Jan. 14—Carolina Dining Services at the University of North Carolina has reached its goal of offering 20 percent sustainable food in UNC dining halls—eight years sooner than expected.

CDS partnered with the student group Fair, Local, Organic to participate in the Real Food Challenge, which was to reach the 20 percent mark by 2020.

And, as CDS announced last month, it reached that mark during the month of September.
