When you attend meals at NCUR you can expect to see local, organic and seasonal items on our menus. Supporting local upstate New York farmers and food producers is important to us, especially when hosting such a large event. The conference meals will be served in a buffet format, although you will be able to “grab and go” with select items. Vegetarian and vegan foods will be available, with gluten free meals upon request. Information on each food will be provided, including nutritional facts to help you make informed food choices.
We ask you to please be conscious of the food that you take at our buffet, although the meals are “all you can eat,” we encourage you to take all that you will eat, and come back for more if necessary. In addition, be conscious of the packaged products you take, if you only need a napkin for your muffin; leave the paper plate for someone else. Any leftover, un-served food will be taken to a food pantry by the Stop Wasting Ithaca’s Food Today (SWIFT) student organization. Creating as sustainable a conference as possible takes not just planning, but your support. We thank you in advance for being conscious while you attend NCUR 2011.
