FRESH to Table


FRESH to Table Explanation


FRESH to Table promotes healthy, regional, socially just, and sustainable food, focusing on community awareness, education and BC's Jesuit values.


FRESH is funded by the Henry P. Kendall Foundation
BC Dining Services applied for and received a grant from The Henry P. Kendall Foundation to fund the implementation of our FRESH to Table initiative and work towards becoming a better, more sustainable dining program.  The Kendall Foundation's goal is to create a resilient and healthy food system in New England by increasing the production and consumption of local, sustainably produced food.


New Menu Items
Each week, Corcoran Commons will be serving new menu items in line with our FRESH standards.  A menu item must meet at least 2 of the 5 parameters before we classify it as FRESH.


Educating our Community
One of the best ways to make a lasting change is to teach others how to make that change.  Throughout the academic year we will be educating the BC community on the importance of sustainable dining and how to implement FRESH ideas into daily life. Check out these articles in The Gavel and The Boston College Chronicle about everything BC Dining is doing for FRESH to Table.
