Well Balanced Meals

We understand that well-balanced meals are important for everyone and Dominican University Dining is committed to offering a variety of healthful options. All of our meals feature lean proteins, whole grains, healthy fats, and a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. The greatest selection of offerings will always be available in the dining hall where guests with special dietary needs can be best accommodated

Local Farmers & Producers

We know firsthand the importance of supporting local businesses. That’s why we utilize Gordon Food Service’s NearBuy program as our primary vendor.

NearBuy offers a variety of produce and specialty items, all produced by farmers and artisans within 250 miles of Dominican University. Their programs provide access to the highest-quality produce and specialty foods that we get to offer in our dining hall. By sourcing locally, we provide unique products that are in-season, in demand, and grown right here in our community.
