Appalachian Food Services is pleased to report that we purchased 14.6% local in 2013. This percentage has grown each year since we first reached 10% in 2011. Being self-operated makes us "local" in every sense of the word. We employ a local staff to prepare the food that is served on campus - from the produce that is prepped in our Vegetable Prep area, to the baked goods and desserts that are produced in our Bake Shop, to the entrees that are prepared in our kitchens by local chefs and cooks. We first began seriously working to source local products in 2010; over the years we have worked closely with the Office of Sustainability to research how other colleges and universities define local. We also used criteria established by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education's (AASHE) STARS® program. The Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System™ (STARS) is a transparent, self-reporting framework for colleges and...
