Campus Initiatives

Racer Dining is committed to striking the balance between sustainable, healthy, and value based campus dining. To that end, here is a growing list of steps we've taken to shrink our negative environmental footprint and model sustainable corporate dining.

Energy Star Equipment
Most kitchen equipment purchased by Racer Dining is certified for energy efficiency.

Recycled Packaging
All our to-go operations use recycled packaging whenever possible, giving our students the opportunity to recycle and reduce landfill waste. All napkins are also made from 100% reusable materials.

Cooking Oil Recovery
Used cooking oil is recycled and converted to environmentally responsible bio diesel fuel, which can power any diesel motor.

The benefits of trayless dining have been proven multiple times over. All of Racer Dining locations have removed trays from their service lines. The result has been an estimated one-third reduction in food waste, cleaning chemicals, and water use.

Better Tomorrow 2025
