Just 4 U
Just 4 U is a easy to follow nutrition messaging program. The goal of the program is to point the way to healthier lifestyles by highlighting 'better-for-you' menu selections. Look for Just 4 U logos on menus in residential dining rooms to help guide you to foods that are vegan, vegetarian, low in calories or low in fat. The program also identifies foods that are organic and grown locally. For more information, pick up a Just 4 U brochure from a residential dining location. Just 4 U logos

Filter Water Program
In Fall 09 we implemented a filtered water program in our retail food courts. The goal of the program is to reduce plastic bottle waste. In contrast to tap water, which is distributed throughout an energy-efficient infrastructure, bottled water must travel long distances to get to customers. To travel the distance vechiles such as boats, trucks and trains. Burn massive quantities of fossil fuels. Additionally, New York has some of the best drinking water in the country, according to the EPA it is so clean it doesn't filtration. Based on these facts, NYU Dining is pleased to be able to give our customers another opportunity to reduce their carbon footprint.

The majority of our residential dining locations have gone trayless! Trayless dining is beneficial to the environment because it eliminates the need to wash trays thereby, reducing chemical detergents released into the environment and conserving the energy that would be used to run the dishwashers. Trayless dining also reduces the amount of food wasted in dining rooms. Check out all the great work our customers have done to help reduce food waste by going trayless:
