Energy efficient appliances -2. tray-less dining-3. compostable and recyclable food/beverage containers -4. interior decorated with environmentally friendly paints and adhesives-5. low waste generation through comprehensive recycling and composting-6. seasonal menus from locally-produced food-7. food produced using humane labor practices-feedback: all of the above. each week, the caf� @ rios chefs contact local farmers, ranchers and artisans to see what products are at the peak of freshness. these products are featured in daily specials in the caf�, allowing the chefs creative freedom to use what is being harvested from local farms in our community. by developing partnerships with local producers , the caf� is stimulating the local economy while reducing food miles. in turn, the caf� receives and prepares better tasting ingredients. students in rio salados sustainable food systems program also contribute to our fresh product selection. vegetables grown as part of the organic gardening class are prepared and served in the caf�. the caf� @ rio bridges the gap between consumer and sustainable producer. through education, both students and caf� guests will help alter sustainable food practices by increasing the number of consumers who are committed to sustainable food production and consumption.
