We make finding healthy choices and nutrition easy!

The most important thing about a “healthy diet” is that it fits your life, fosters good health, and sustains the maintenance of a stable and healthy body weight. U.Va. Dining provides you with meals that are filled with fresh, flavorful, and satisfying foods that you will love. We make good-for-you seem right-for-you!

If you have a specialized dietary request, please contact the manager of that location. You may also email with any general diet questions or concerns.
