Starting in Fall 2011, the Mainstreet Farmers Market comes to campus the 3rd Tuesday of each month to sell fresh, delicious local produce, honey, milk, grits, baked goods and jellies, pasta and sauces and much more. Find them at Williams Center Plaza 10-2pm on 3rd Tuesdays!
Eagle Dining Services, in partnership with the Center for Sustainability and the Georgia Southern Botanical Garden, held a “Sustainable Feast” during Spring 2011 No Impact Week. Fresh local produce and local free range chicken were purchased from local growers to create this delicious meal. The event had a great turnout, and we look forward to having more sustainable feasts!
At Georgia Southern University, the Eagle Dining Services supports sustainability by offering several vegetarian meals in its dining facilities, and is looking into more ways to incorporate sustainable menu items. In addition, Landrum Dining Center offers trayless dining and all eat-in options on china service to cut down on waste production from take-out. At Lakeside Cafe’, all takeout containers are 100% compostable. For all meal plan holders, Eagle Dining also provides a reusable cup that can be filled in place of a disposable cup at all campus locations.
