The Dig It kitchen garden launched this fall in Dobbins Dining at Penn State Behrend. The fully automated appliances allow campus dining staff to grow and cook with a variety of fresh herbs, vegetables, and microgreens.
We're here to listen! The Food Advisory Board (FAB) is an open forum for students and food-service management to work together to make dining on campus the best it can possibly be. FAB connects Housing and Food Services with students to discuss campus food services. Meetings are scheduled throughout the semester and are open to all students.
To ensure that we meet the highest standards in all aspects of food service, our food, equipment, and facilities are inspected regularly. Inspections include a review of the facility, practices, food handling process, food storage process, food preparation process, equipment, food temperatures, and employee practices.
We take nutrition seriously and strive to provide our students many options for flavorful and nutritionally balanced meals. If you have a special dietary need due to a food allergy or intolerance, Penn State’s Housing and Food Services is here to help.
Sending your Penn State student a gift from the heart is simple with our Special Delivery treats--the perfect surprise for any occasion. Each gift includes your personalized message. We offer gifts for birthdays, Halloween, Finals Boost, Valentine's Day, or just because.
Housing and Food Services is continuously developing its sustainability initiatives. It is our goal to be as "green" as possible by making environmentally focused choices while providing quality service and products for our students.
