Wake Forest Dining is committed to serving locally-sourced produce and proteins in all locations when possible. We are working with our suppliers and a third party vendor to secure more options to meet AASHE STAR's goals. Additionally, beginning in January of 2015, we serve cage-free whole shell eggs and our company plans to eliminate all pork from animals bred using gestation crates in ARAMARK’s U.S. supply chain by 2017. The announcement by ARAMARK was made in conjunction with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the nation’s largest animal protection organization.
We pull data from our vendors monthly to assess our status in purchasing sustainable food. We then manually review the data and sort using STARS 2.0 guidelines and criteria. Purchasing information is based upon purchases from September, 2014 - March, 2015.

Wake Forest University Dining seeks to purchase and utilize sustainable cleaning products, paper products, utensils, and beverageware in an effort to reduce waste sent to our landfills, as well as to minimize the release of harmful chemicals into our water system. Products from companies such as PacCo paper cups, Eco Products, JanPak Cleaning Suplies and Southeast Paper products are part of our routine ordering process, and we work with our procurement partners to identify new items as they become available.
