Vegan, Vegetarian & Organic Options

The demand for healthier dining options like vegan and organic food has increased over the last few years. FIU has responded by providing more healthy options in many of the different food venues on campus. Check out the Vegan and Vegetarian options available. 

Healthy Eating

The food we eat everyday play and integral role in our overall wellbeings. It is important that we nourish our bodies with the highest quality food possible with the lowest pesticide residue. Visit FIU's Nutritional Highlights page for the Panther Dining Nutrition guide to make informed decisions about what you are eating on campus. The Dirty Dozen Plus includes produce that have the highest levels of toxic insecticides. These are important to buy organic. The Clean 15 is a list of produce with the lowest levels of pesticides. These are safer to buy non-organic if organic options are not available. 

Aramark

Aramark has taken the initiative toward making the dining experience on campus more sustainable at all of their campus venues. Some of the initiatives they have started include recycling the old coffee grounds to be used as fertilizer around campus and removing trays to save water.

FIU Organic Farmers Market

Every Wednesday during the Fall and Spring semesters there is an Organic Farmers Market in the center of campus. The completely student run market is put on by the FIU Organic Farmers Market Consortium, which is made up of various student groups at FIU. Items featured at the market include fresh produce from the FIU Organic Garden on campus, produce from local farms, local organic honey, baked goods, hand made soaps, smoothies, sandwiches, and salads. Take part in the weekly food demonstrations, yoga workshops, and educational tables. Currently the market is set up on Modesto Maidique Campus, between Primera Casa and the Green Library, by the fountain, at the red brick wall by the library from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.
