Good. Fresh. Local. Dining hall offers value, education
The Good. Fresh. Local. (GFL) University of Nebraska-Lincoln Sustainable Food Project began in University Dining Service/University Housing in 2005. This 'local' project identifies 'local food' as coming from Nebraska farmers, producers, and manufacturers. Students and the UNL community are strong supporters of GFL where GFL menu items are served primarily at Cather/Pound/Neihardt Dining Service, The Nebraska East Union Cafe, and University Dining Catering Service.
The GFL Project is built on a foundation that:
- Serves traditional menu items that promote the value of local food.
- Educates students about sustainable agriculture and the positive impact it has on the environment, local economies and communities.
- Provides a new distribution opportunity for local farmers and producers in the world of university dining service.
