Our Initiatives

Your Salve Dining Team is dedicated to sustainability. We know we can all work together to make a positive impact right here at Salve Regina University. In addition to the many initiatives we take on as a company, we have implemented the following programs specific to Salve Regina University

Local Fish and Seafood

Our seaside, New England location means access to some of the freshest, most delicious and responsibly sourced fish and seafood possible. Red's Best ™ our seafood partner, is located in Boston and is committed to only distributing fish and seafood from small, local, independent fish boats supporting the local fishing industry and tradition.

Campus Garden

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 garden.

Local Farms

We work hard with our vendors to get as many locally sourced ingredients as possible. Our professionally trained chefs create our menus to take advantage of seasonal produce.

Reusable Cup

The environment and your wallet win! Bring your own reusable cup to purchase coffee on campus and a receive a discount every time.

Recycling Fryer Oil into Biofuel

French fries to fuel. Indeed our fryer oil is recycled into biodiesel by Newport Biodiesel and is converted into sustainable heating fuel.
