Sustainable food

What is Ghent University doing about sustainable and healthy food in the restos and cafeteria? What can you do when you have to provide catering for meetings or events? And how can you get started?


Policy sustainable food

Ghent University has committed itself to providing 50% of the menu with vegetarian dishes by 2025. Currently, there are 2 veggie and 2 meat/fish dishes on the menu on Tuesdays, and on Thursday Veggie Day the ratio is 1 to 3.


Sustainable catering on events and meetings

Departments or services can use a sustainable catering list to find the most sustainable caterer for a reception, meeting or event.


Education and research

Together with researchers, we want to search for a healthy and ecologically sound diet, with less meat and unsustainable fish consumption.


Do you want more?

Do you want to give a stronger signal? Introduce vegan and veg dishes more? Maybe we can help? Or would you like some inspiration?
