Learn how being self-operated makes Appalachian Food Services “local” in every sense of the word.  Participants will see our operation from the storeroom to the dining room and will:

  • Learn about ordering, delivery and food preparation at an institution the size of Appalachian
  • Discover the number of meals we serve each day
  • Visit our meat cutting room, vegetable prep room and the Bake Shop
  • Learn about our sustainability and local food initiatives
