We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations. 

Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:

Local Purchasing


Did you know Dining Services sources food from many local famers, growers and distributors? The list changes throughout the year depending on seasonality and availability. However, here is a sampling of a few of our partners: 

•Simon & Leeman, 2445 E. Grand Bvld., Detroit, MI 48211  


Dining Services partners with campus to recycle from all dining locations across campus. We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint. Look for signs in our locations for information on where to put your recyclables.

Recycled Content Paper

We use 30% recycled content office and copy paper in all dining locations on campus.

Energy & Water Conservation

We train our employees each semester on common energy and water conservation practices in order to conserve precious natural resources.
