We work together to continually develop and implement sustainable solutions. Through Green Thread, our environmental sustainability platform, we bring innovative and efficient solutions to life. We are passionately focused on reducing the environmental impact within our operations. 

Here are just a few ways we work to make our campus more environmentally conscious:

Local Purchasing

Did you know Tiger Dining sources food from many local farmers, growers and distributors? The list changes throughout the year depending on seasonality and availability.

We also partner with Auburn Foods; foods grown by the Auburn family for the Auburn Family. Click the image to learn more.

Tiger Dining recycles from all dining locations. We are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint. Look for signs in our locations for information on where to put your recyclables.


Take part in our reusable to-go program to reduce waste at Tiger Zone and Foy. Alternatively, students also have the ability to opt out of receiving single-use flatware when placing to-go orders.

Fryer Oil Recycling

One hundred percent of dining services used fryer oil is recycled. 

Hydration Stations

Tiger Dining offers several hydration stations. Use the filtered water stations to refresh and refuel while helping to impact your carbon footprint.

Green Cleaning

All dining locations are committed to using cleaning products in our operations to reduce the need for chemical based cleaning products and provide a healthy and safe learning environment.

Energy & Water Conservation

We train our employees on common energy and water conservation practices in order to conserve precious natural resources.
