Food & Wellness
FIU Organic Farmers Market
Every Wednesday during the Fall and Spring semester is an Organic Farmers Market in the center of campus. The Farmers Market is put on by the FIU Organic Farmers Market Consortium, which is made up of many student groups at FIU. Many local vendors also feature their products at the market each week. Items featured at the market are produce from the FIU Organic Garden, produce from local farms, local organic honey, local organic baked goods, local organic hand made soaps, smoothies, sandwiches, free bike repair shop, food demos, workshops, and many 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 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Wednesdays.
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 these options in many of the different food venues on campus. Check out the Shop.FIU.edu Vegan and Vegetarian Options by clicking the link in the right-hand column.
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. For a complete listing of initiatives download the Aramark Sustainability initiatives document.
Student Health Services
Wellness is about trying to find a balance, on a daily basis, between all of our competing interests, while remaining content, focused and at peace. We all lead very fast paced and complicated lives. We have school, work, friends, family, etc. They all require our time, energy and attention. Sometimes it’s difficult to figure out what to pay attention to first. FIU Student Health Services provides many programs to help you unwind everything from massage to meditation.
Smoke Free Campus
In January 2011 FIU officially became a Tobacco & Smoke Free Campus. The Breathe Easy Tobacco & Smoke Free Campus Campaign was passed thanks to the dedication and hard work of the members of the FIU Healthy Campus Task Force.

FIU Bike Shop

More than just a repair shop, the FIU Bike Shop is the central location for "all things "bike" on campus - from providing a central location to learn more about safe biking, to finding out about local rides and events, and directing you to local and national resources on bicycling.
