Our salads and vegetables come...

directly from the Palatinate “vegetable garden” Due to the mild climate on the one hand and the canteens’ seasonally oriented meal plan on the other, local vegetables are served throughout most of the year. As a member of a purchasing cooperative of Associations for Student Affairs, the Studierendenwerk Vorderpfalz (Association for Student Affairs of the Anterior Palatinate) benefits from inexpensive purchasing prices - one of several requirements for good-value meals in the canteen.

Up and coming: Sustainability

All our coffee and cocoa products bear fair trade seals. Our environmentally friendly alternative to the disposable coffee-to-go cup is the Campus-Cup, a fancy porcelain cup.

Furthermore, all fish products used by the Studierendenwerk Vorderpfalz come exclusively from the sustainable fishing industry.

No food for the bin

The Studierendenwerk Vorderpfalz plans the daily production quantity on the basis of experience. Therefore, we do not only exhibit foresight when buying ingredients for our kitchens. Preparation of meals is also based on real demand so that only a small number of the necessary ingredients have to be in stock.

In accordance with our quality assurance concept, all ingredients that have not been placed in the food serving area are recycled. The stocks are kept at a minimum and fresh goods are delivered on a daily basis in order to prevent expiry. This means that no food spoils in our pantries.
