Eat Local

Danforth Campus eateries will offer meals made entirely of local food — with the exception of salt — Tuesday, Sept. 27, as part of WUSTL Dining Services’ Eat Local Challenge.

Ingredients for Eat Local Challenge meals will come from farmers and artisans within 150 miles of WUSTL.

The Danforth University Center (DUC) servery will offer a local hot meal during lunch, and the Bear’s Den and Village will offer a local hot meal during dinner. Other eateries on the Danforth Campus will offer a pre-packaged local meal.

Ibby’s in the DUC will host a three-course local meal, with your choice of entrée, during dinner. The menu features such items as grilled trout, sweet potato puree, roasted fall Brussel sprouts with Missouri apple cider gastrique and toasted Missouri pecans, for $25. For reservations, call (314) 935-3940.

“The Eat Local Challenge highlights our chefs’ creativity, educates guests about eating locally and seasonally, and supports and publicizes great local farmers,” says Jill Duncan, director of marketing and communications for WUSTL Dining Services.
