What is High Point Dining doing to preserve the Earth?


Local Purchasing

Did you know HPU Dining sources food from many local farmers, 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:

  • Lewis Nursery and Farms, Rocky Point, NC
  • Carolina Mushroom Farm, Willow Spring, NC
  • Gnam Gnam Gelato, Greensboro, NC
  • Red Clay Gourmet, Winston-Salem, NC
  • Burch Farms, Faison, NC
  • Golden Grains Baking, Charlotte, NC
  • Scott Farms, Lucama, NC

Responsible Sourcing

For HPU Dining, responsible sourcing is a must for any of the products we serve. Our list of responsibly sourced products is constantly growing due to our increased emphasis for these practices to ourĀ  new vendors. However, here is a sampling of a few of our products offered:

  • Cage Free Eggs from Abbotsford Farms
  • Certified Humane Chicken from Joyce Farms
  • GAP 3 Certified Choice Fed Beef from Brass Town Beef

Other Sustainable Practices:

HPU Dining partners with the campus to recycle cardboard and commingled items 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.
