Department of Nutrition and Dietetics
Since 2002, the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics has included a sustainable food systems curricular thread. From using local ingredients in dietetics course classes to receiving grant funding for projects such as Healthy Eating with Local Produce (H.E.L.P), the Nutrition and Dietetics Department is committed to supporting sustainable-based efforts. Take a look below at some of the many exciting projects below:
- Start to Actively Recycle Today (START)
- Saint Louis University Teaching Gardens
The first SLU Orchard Training will take place Monday, March 17th from 4pm to 6pm in the SLU orchard near the intersection of Caroline Street and Virginia Ave. With the help of Stark Bro's Nursery and Orchards, we will learn how to plant fruit trees, as well as prune trees for optimal fruit production. If you are interested in participating in this training opportunity, please contact Kristen Stewart at email@example.com in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics.
**Further orchard training opportunities to come in the near future.
The Nutrition and Dietetics Department hosts a Culinary Camp for kids during the summer. The camp teaches kids about sustainable food and practices.
