Here in the Spence Kitchen, we view what we eat as part of the solution to environmentally sound decision-making. We always remember that we are part of greater environmental network, and our choices foster resilient and alternative modes of food production while maintaining equity for all people at every point of the food chain. We try to look at what and how we buy, consume and discard in relation to our goals of lowered environmental impact and high-quality nutrition.
We embrace the concept of sustainable development and its focus on people, planet and profit to guide our daily decision-making. As a community, we strive to engage in interrupting the standard business-as-usual model that often falls short of our stated sustainability goals.
Furthermore, the team supports self-awareness and mindfulness. As such, we are open to change and always reassessing how we approach our goals. We love feedback and know student success is linked with our engagement in creating a positive dining experience.
