Local / Seasonal / Responsible Sourcing

Campus Tower Gardens

From field to fork without ever leaving campus. It doesn't get more local than food grown right here. We are proud to work with the campus community to grow and serve food from our campus tower gardens.
Yearly we grow 220 pounds of fresh lettuce and herbs from the campus tower gardens.

Farmer’s Markets

Farmers Markets bring the idea of local home for many of us. That is why we work closely with our local suppliers to feature locally grown products at campus Farmer's Markets.
In October, we held the 3rd annual UW Oshkosh Farmers Market featuring over 10 different local farmers, growers and suppliers.

Local Suppliers

We work closely with local produce distributors to maximize the fruits and vegetables purchased from local farms. We also purchase from local dairies, and participate in farm to school initiatives. Tracking local purchases helps us to meet our Better Tomorrow Plan commitment of 20% local purchase by 2020.

We are proud to feature the following local suppliers:

  • Kickapoo Valley – Wisconsin Rapids, WI
  • Brakebush Bros Inc. – Westfield, WI
  • Royal Kitchens – West Allis, WI
  • Sun Belle Inc. – Schiller Park, WI
  • Bushmans Inc. – Rosholt, WI
  • Richland Hills – Richland Center, WI
  • Potandon Produce LLC – Palatine, WI
  • Pritzlaff Wholesale Meats Inc. – New Berlin, WI
  • Cookie Dough Creations – Naperville, WI
  • Growing Power Inc – Milwaukee, WI

Sustainable Fish and Seafood

We are committed to serving sustainable seafood and fish. By 2015 100% of our fish and seafood will be sustainably certified by the Marine Stewardship Council or the Best Aquaculture Practices. We do not purchase any at risk species.

Local Dairy

All of our fluid milk is purchased from local dairies that do not use rBST.
Our local dairy suppliers, Red Barn and Kemps, source all of their milk from within the state.

Sustainable Catering

All it takes are a few simple steps to more sustainable catered events. We feature menus that are locally grown, seasonal, vegetarian and/or well balanced. We use china serviceware whenever possible, but if necessary, we try to use compostable and/or recyclable disposableware. We strive to eliminate bottled beverages when possible by replacing them with pitchers of drinks and reusable glassware, and feature our infused water hydration.
