Fresh Approach to Food

Our focus is on craftsmanship, and we choose imperfect over standardized food. Our chefs take production into their own hands – chopping, dicing, peeling and cooking from scratch with real ingredients. It's at the core of who we are, and we embrace it.

How We Keep Our Food Real

Sustainable Dining

Sustainability is important to us, and we pride ourselves on providing a socially responsible, customer-focused culinary experience.



EcoSteps™ illustrates the progress we have made in addressing sustainable food service, greening our dining operations and expanding our social responsibility. Preserving our planet’s resources for future generations is of the utmost importance to us.



FarmSource® is an initiative that helps us find and partner with some of the finest food growers and producers in our communities. Through FarmSource®, as much as 20 percent of the food we serve is provided exclusively by local sources.


FarmSource® produce is sourced within 150 miles of our local distributors. We select these growers through farmer-based organizations.


FarmSource® dairy products come from farms located within 150 miles of their milk processing facility. These dairies are independently owned and operated by local families who choose not to treat their cows with rBGH (bovine growth hormone). The result: deliciously natural, hormone-free milk.


FarmSource® meat is produced regionally. These facilities are USDA-inspected and source their animals from farms that are within a three-hour drive of the processing facility.


FarmSource® artisan producers devote their time, energy and passion to crafting a limited line of products that are high in quality and unique in flavor. Often, artisan producers have but a single product line, created at a single facility.

Who We Are

Founded in 1899 by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, the College of Saint Elizabeth has a strong tradition of concern for the poor, for developing leadership in a spirit of service and social responsibility, and a commitment to the promotion of women as full partners in society.
