The staff of Burge and Hillcrest Market Place is committed to providing dining options and healthy lifestyle information that will assist our students in making "Smart Choices" for their health and for our environment.
Each Market Place provides wholesome, healthy and tasty selected locally grown food options to our students through the "It's Only Natural" program. In addition to serving a wide-variety of foods for those with differing dietary concerns, we are continually exploring the availability of locally grown, seasonal and sustainable foods.
The Market Places offer a wide variety of menu choices. There are always many entree and side dishes from which to choose. Sometimes, it's hard for students to make food and lifestyle choices that will keep them healthy during their stressful college years. "Live Smart" is a Residential Dining initiative that encourages students to choose a balanced diet and participate in a regular exercise program.
"Waste Not" is a Market Place program designed to reduce our impact on the environment. We participate in a student-initiated composting program at Hillcrest and Burge to investigate ways to turn our food waste into organic matter for fertilizer. As part of our community, students can help by taking only what they intend to eat and limiting the amount of waste they create. Together, we can all make a difference.
