University Culinary Services
OUR VISION. YOUR FUTURE.
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE SUSTAINABLE CHOICES
Farm to Campus is MSU Culinary Services' local food purchasing initiative.
It is Farm to Campus’ mission to partner with members of our campus and statewide agriculture community to support the development of Montana’s local food systems, and to promote the health of our patrons through enhanced local and sustainable practices on campus.
As the largest institutional foodservice operator in the state of Montana, Culinary Services is in a unique position to leverage our buying volumes with local producers to provide them with reliable demand for their products.
To do this, we collaborate with local producers, processors and food manufacturers throughout the state, and support students and future producers from MSU’s College of Agriculture.
