SUSTAINABILITY

In partnership with UCSB’s Housing, Dining & Auxiliary Enterprises, The Club & Guest House focuses on fresh, local, sustainable and quality food for an enhanced campus dining experience. With a commitment to personal and environmental wellness, menu offerings include healthy, natural and seasonal ingredients, with minimal processing and additives. By partnering with local distributors for organic and/or sustainably-grown produce, The Club & Guest House prides itself on a farm-to-table experience. Other selections include fair-trade organic coffee and teas, local olive oil and honey, 100% sustainable seafood following the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch and whenever possible, cage-free chicken breasts and local grass-fed beef.
