Starting this month, Northeastern is partnering with the Massachusetts Farm to School Project and its Harvest of the Month campaign to promote healthy food choices by students.
The International Village dining hall reopened Thursday after a series of summer renovations. The revamped facility now includes new stations for guests with food allergies and a preference for kosher food as well as halal protein and a “Deli-To-Go” program.
The university is the first in Boston to sign on to the “Real Food Challenge,” a commitment by higher education institutions to purchase at least 20 percent of its food from local, fair, and sustainable sources by 2020.
Summer renovations on Northeastern’s campus are vast and varied, ranging from the construction of new research and learning spaces to expanding the menu at the International Village dining hall. But they are tied together by one common thread: enhancing the overall student experience.
