SDSU Dining is committed to providing the campus community with menu options that are responsible and sustainable. This commitment is both in accordance with the SDSU Strategic Plan and Aztec Shops’ mission to be responsive to the needs of the campus community.
Dining utilizes over 35 raised beds in the College Area Community Garden and Hello Walkway Garden to grow and harvest a variety of produce. Some of the more high-yield ingredients include chard, carrots, tomatoes, peppers, pole beans, squash, radishes, and herbs. Additionally, forty aeroponic towers were installed at The Garden at Cuicacalli patio that produce over 1,760 heads of leafy greens every three weeks.
These campus-sourced vegetables and herbs are served to the University community at a growing list of SDSU locations.
