UMass Dining goal is to move beyond ...
UMass Dining, a campus food service provider, serves 45,000 meals per day and purchases $850,000 of sustainable seafood per year. It is the largest dining-services operation in the country. UMass Dining students consume nearly 21 pounds per year of seafood per person, over the national average of 14 pounds.
This gives UMass Dining a unique responsibility to not only source foods that are socially and ecologically responsible but to educate their industry. All seafood served through their program is certified sustainably sourced using Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch guidelines. UMass has gone beyond this by incorporating locally-sourced underutilized seafood, into their programs to reduce their environmental impact, save endangered fish populations, and increase the resiliency of the New England fishing industry.
