University of Virginia – Fair Trade on Grounds

It is the mission of U.Va. Dining, in partnership with the University of Virginia, to increase the availability and visibility of Fair Trade items in our dining rooms and convenience stores. By committing to providing Fair Trade in all dining locations, U.Va. Dining hopes to empower students to participate in positive social change through the purchase of treats like chocolate, coffee and ice cream (creating positive change has never tasted better). U.Va. Dining strives to educate students on the power of purchase to create a sustainable future for our local and global community – a world that is environmentally sound, economically viable, and socially responsible.
