Colgate University's goal for sustainable dining does not only pertain to reducing our carbon footprint. We also support our local community to help ensure that each family has a healthy meal in their plate.
Community Vegetable Garden
Through the dedicated efforts of our students and the support of faculty and alumni, we started our own community garden in 2010. The Colgate Community Garden
continues to provide produce to the Hamilton Food Cupboard, a food pantry that serves the Hamilton & Madison School Districts.
Colgate Hunger Outreach Program (CHOP)
This group of student volunteers addresses issues of hunger in Madison County and strives to educate the Colgate community about the deeper issues surrounding hunger and poverty. Join the club by dropping by their booth in the Activities Fair or contact
one of the team leaders. Dining Services
Colgate University Dining Services has a number of other initiatives to help advance sustainability at Colgate More.
