The GFL (Good. Fresh. Local.) University of Nebraska–Lincoln Sustainable Food Project
The GFL program began in September 2005 and is a very popular local dining program with students and the UNL community. This program defines 'local' as food that comes from Nebraska farmers, producers, and manufacturers.The GFL program is built on a foundation that:
- Serves traditional menu items that promote the value of local food
- Educates students about sustainable agriculture and the positive impact it has on the environment, local economy and communities
- Provides a new distribution opportunity for local farmers and producers in the world of university food service
- Nebraska Cooperative Development Center
- Nebraska farmers, producers and manufacturers
- The Food Processing Center
- The Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society
- University Dining Services
- University of Nebraska–Lincoln students
A few of our featured GFL producers include Bluestem Farms (Madison, NE), Bluff Valley Farm (Rulo, NE), Common Good Farm (Raymond, NE), North Star Neighbors (Fullerton, NE), Pawnee Pride Meats (Steinauer, NE) and Harvest Home (Waverly, NE).
The GFL program features special monthly meals at Cather/Pound/Neihardt and East Campus Union Dining Centers and incorporates individual GFL menu items on a daily basis. In addition, the Catering Department offers GFL menus and a few GFL items are offered at Abel/Sandoz, Harper and Selleck Dining Centers.If you have any questions about the GFL Project, contact Pam Edwards, Assistant Director – University Dining Services, at 402-472-9045 or email@example.com.
