80 Best Colleges for Food in America for 2016 (Slideshow)

Slide 1 of 80
#80 Ohio University, Athens

Ohio University is a newcomer to this list that is finally getting recognition for some strides made in dining in the past few years. They raised their local produce purchases from 5 percent to 18 percent since 2013, they hired a nutritionist in 2014, and they now compost 100 percent of all food waste. One recent renovation to Nelson Commons nabbed them an LEED Silver Certification and the school hopes more are on the way. And why not, since Ohio University is constantly updating facilities, having renovated every single one of their venues in the last 10 years.

We previously recognized Ohio University for its Mom’s Weekend. Click here for more info.
