Our Initiatives

Your Dining Services Team is dedicated to sustainability. We know we can all work together to make a positive impact right here at Saint Peter's University. In addition to the many initiatives we take on as a company, we have implemented the following programs specific to Saint Peter's University.

Xprss Nap

XPressnap dispensers are another solution to reducing energy and waste. They use 30% less paper than traditional napkin dispensing mechanisms. The great thing about these dispensers is that they help the environment while helping to keep costs down. The napkins are made of 100% recycled paper and the dispenser will encourage customers to take (and waste) less napkins.

Trayless

Our Resident Dining Program is Trayless and Strawless to help reduce the amount of waste we produce.

Apex

Apex combines technology and products designed to save water and energy, minimize the impact of products on the environment, and has a built-in method of measuring results. Apex uses a unique combination of detergents, rinse additives, equipment and consultative services to address the operational challenges in food-service operations.

Reusable Cup

Saint Peter's Dining Services offers a $20 Reusable Tumbler for our customers to be able to take beverages to go after dining in Loughran Dining Room. The cup is a one time purchase for unlimited to-go beverages.

Campus Kitchen

Dining Services works closely with Campus Kitchen at Saint Peter's University to help feed those less fortunate in our community.
