UC Food Services introduces a new fresh and healthy on-the-go campus dining option

UC Food Services is pleased to announce their partnership with Farmer’s Fridge.

This new partnership will assist in meeting the dining needs of UC’s increasing student population. UC Food Services serves nearly 2.5 million meals a year, so considering new ways to improve access to fresh, healthy-meal options is part of our mission. The Smart Fridge by Farmer’s Fridge aims to do just that.

Farmer’s Fridge, a national food services business, provides healthy, fresh food-vending options. Using the highest quality ingredients, Farmer’s Fridge makes it easy to get nutritious food on the go. UC Food Services is excited to bring these hearty meal options to campus, allowing the UC community to get fresh meals any time any day.

These machines are designed to make finding fresh and healthy meals as simple as vending a candy bar.

Farmer’s Fridge vending options enable Bearcats to have healthier meals while on the go, including fresh and hearty salads, sandwich wraps, and great snack items such as guacamole and nachos. Additionally, Farmer’s Fridge vending options aim to meet all food preferences from vegetarian to omnivores. Some meal options include: Baja bowls, berries & granola Greek yogurt, burrito bowls, grilled chicken Caesar salads and chocolate chia pudding.

Farmer’s Fridge introduces an environmentally conscious approach to vending. Sustainability has never been this easy. Not only does Farmer’s Fridge provide bio-degradable bowls and silverware on the side of every machine, but there’s also a place to recycle items when finished dining.
