According to The Daily Meal, Duke is one of the best universities in the nation when it comes to food.  It’s in the top 1% to be exact.  When I first heard this, I was shocked.  Duke?  The best food?  Although Duke food isn’t horrible, it doesn’t seem extraordinary either, especially with all the changes that happened over the summer. Duke removed several popular dining options including Chick-Fil-A, Armadillo Grill, and Subway, and added the Penn Pavilion and Red Mango. Students complain all the time about the changes that were made, but there is a lot to be thankful for here at Duke in terms of dining.

Many folks around the nation have embraced the “Eat Local” movement, in regard to meat, produce and dairy, but not much attention has been paid to fish. EAT LOCAL FISH DAY on Tuesday, 9/25 will introduce you to sustainable seafood.

Please join Duke Dining and Bon Appetit Management Company at the Marketplace on East Campus on Tuesday, 9/25 at lunchtime, for the Eat Local Fish Challenge. Helpful apps, recipes and extensive research will be available to all and sustainable fish populations will be highlighted.

 

Duke Dining is committed to fulfilling many goals, one of which is providing access to nutritional data. To help achieve that goal Duke Dining has been selected as one of a few universities to pilot a nutrition program at Marketplace and the West Union. Please bear with us as with any new program there are a few bugs to be worked out and please let us know how the new nutrition program is working for you.
