At Middlebury, local food isn't just what we do; it's who we are.
Middlebury College Dining Services is committed to supporting local food systems. Our goal is to provide the highest quality and best tasting food to our students as well as to create a dining experience that engages with our community and our environment.
Currently, 32% of the Dining Service's annual food budget is spent locally at 50 year-long and seasonal vendors, including Middlebury's own Organic Farm. Local raw ingredients, in-season fruits and vegetables, as well as meat and poultry, are all used regularly by Middlebury's dedicated dining staff. Vermont maple syrup, eggs, soy milk, and dairy products such as milk, cheese, yogurt and ice cream can be found in the dining halls daily.
