Sustainability Commitment

Diversity Food Services is a recognized leader in sustainable institutional food services. Diversity's on-campus efforts to advance the University of Winnipeg's commitment to sustainable environmental practices have been recognized since 2015 as the most sustainable post-secondary campus food service in Canada.  Whenever possible Diversity makes procurement decisions that are environmentally, socially, culturally, and economically sustainable.  This means that most of the food served is obtained from small independent farmers and businesses located around Winnipeg. Diversity hopes to support the broader University goals of developing healthy communities.

All of the Diversity campus locations LEAF II certified (Leaders in Environmentally Accountable Foodservice). 

Diversity uses compostable/biodegradable products that are formatted specifically to align with the requirements of the campus composting program.

The coffee, tea, chocolate, and sugar that is used at Diversity are Fairtrade certified products.
