DePaul's food service provider is dedicated to purchasing local and organic foods. DePaul spends up to 8 percent of its annual food budget on local items. The university buys exclusively hormone- and antibiotic-free meat and milk, as well as cage-free eggs and grass-fed beef and pork. Most seafood is purchased according to sustainability guidelines, and all coffee served through dining services is fair trade-certified. The dining halls are trayless, and 90 percent of recyclables are diverted from landfills.
