SGA’s Campus Dining team works as a liaison between Auburn students and the staff at Tiger Dining. The Campus Dining team receives feedback from students and ensures it is heard and acted upon. With the arrival of 6 new or renovated dining facilities this year, Auburn has seen many exciting venue changes, and we would love to hear your feedback.
With SGA’s Executive Goal of improving dining sustainability, we are working toward reusable take-out containers and an on-campus composting site. We have also been utilizing fresh food grown at our Aquaponics and Meat Lab sites. This allows us to use food grown right, in Auburn.
We have focused on reducing food waste by partnering with Campus Kitchens, an on-campus organization focused on repurposing unserved food from dining locations to give to students at no cost. Dining is also cooking up a centralized resource center to fight food insecurity on Auburn’s campus. About 27% of Auburn students are food insecure, meaning they may not know where their next meal is coming from, or have access to healthy, nutritious meals. Tiger Dining is also working with the Campus Food Pantry, Auburn Cares, and Auburn Foods in hopes of dramatically lowering this number.
After a strange year for all students, dining is back and better than ever. Auburn welcomed The Edge, a brand new dining hall this year. The Edge is offering more options than any other location on campus with our best team working to make delicious food for students. In other news, SGA President, Rett Waggoner’s, Late Night Dining options are still up and running for this semester. Remember to stop by after a night downtown or even nights spent at the library. Late Night Dining is working on finding more food options and locations in the future.
