Please inform your cashier you are using a "Meal" vs your retail points.

We are committed to reducing single-use packaging, minimizing our impact on the environment. We have invested heavily in our EcoWare carryout program, purchasing new reusable containers. To keep this option available, we must have these containers returned regularly. EcoWare is approved by the Department of Health and properly sanitized by UVM Dining.

How it works?

Our traditional dining halls are either dine-in or for a meal to-go using EcoWare (once per meal period)

  • Give your EcoWare token to the cashier and ask for an EcoWare container (a flat box or soup container). If you would like to also dine-in, please inform the cashier, and they will have you swipe for that meal. 
  • Fill your EcoWare with food from the dining hall (we ask it close).
  • Leave the dining hall and enjoy your meal. 
  • Empty (and if possible, rinse) and return your dirty EcoWare container to an EcoWare return bin located in most dining locations. You will receive a new token (or container if you are ready for your next to-go meal).
  • Repeat to continue to participate in the program.

In the Retail Locations (Choose to ReUse)

Opt for your meal to be served in EcoWare (where available). It's good for the environment and your wallet.

  • Give your EcoWare token to the cook/server and ask for an EcoWare container (a flat box or soup container).
  • Save 25 cents at the register.
  • Enjoy your meal.
  • Return your dirty EcoWare container to an EcoWare return bin, located in most dining locations, and you will receive a new token.
  • Repeat to continue to participate in the program.

Sporks, reusable utensils are available to purchase in our retail locations; choose to reuse to get a 5 cent discount off your next meal at the register.

UVM Dining will provide dining options for students that go into on-campus quarantine/isolation. Students will pick up their meals and snacks in a pantry area set up on the first floor of Jeanne Mance, for the duration of their isolation/quarantine period. This space will be open 24/7 to provide convenience and flexibility to students. 

The pantry will offer a variety of breakfast items, sandwiches, salads, and re-heatable entrees. A variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten/nut free items will be available as part of the standard options. Beverages, snack items and k-cup coffee and tea will also be available. Wondering what's for dinner; to access, click on the "lunch" tab and scroll down to "Quarantine" to view online.
