Our community focus doesn't stop with great food, inviting atmospheres and bringing people together to build community; we strive to look at the bigger picture of our global impact and the effect our program has on our planet. Kent State University Dining Service is committed to advancing sustainable initiatives that reduce our carbon footprint and empower our campus to "eat green."
