Eat Local

It's not just what you eat, but how far the food travels that matters at the Rochester. More than 60 percent of all of the items sold and served on campus are grown, raised, processed, or wholly manufactured within New York State. More than 10 eateries—from a full-service restaurant to our sushi bar and pizza place—provide food that is not only fresh and tasty, but, whenever possible, locally grown. In recognition of Dining Service's commitment to buying locally, the University was named the first college member of the Pride of New York program.
