Food Quality and Nutrition Awareness

Students' awareness of nutrition and healthy eating is at an all time high. The need to focus on quality food and nutrition has become one of BGSU Dining's mission moving forward. Through our Eat. Learn. Live. and the Dine On Campus web site, we are not just saying that we are focusing on food quality and nutrition, we are actually showing it. After all, a well-nourished student is much more likely to get better grades in school! The following outlines our nutrition programs and how they will be implemented at Bowling Green State University.

Eat • Learn • Live

Nourishing students is not only our business; it's our commitment to the community that we serve. These are just three simple words that communicate our singleminded commitment to provide the food and nutrition that fuels your students to succeed in their education, laying the foundation for a long, healthier life.
