Sustainability and Dining Services
PCC Dining Services has been serving local food and beverages long before sustainability became a buzz word. Beginning in the mid 90's, Dining Services began carrying local unknown products like Higher Taste vegetarian sandwiches and a new local hot beverage called Oregon Chai (both well known products now).
Over the last 20+ years, Dining Services has continued to expand its commitment to sustainability adding a variety of sustainable foods, but also serving compostable service ware, working with facilities services to reduce waste and increase composting, as well as purchasing energy and water saving equipment whenever possible.
