International Food Fare for Wash U Students

Washington University in St. Louis students will be enjoying meals in one of the country’s best dining facilities.  The opening of the new South 40 House, located on the university’s Danforth Campus, offers a plethora of food options to the increasingly diverse university community.  The eatery’ s stations feature dishes prepared on a Mongolian grill and tandoori ovens, plus hearth -baked pizza and fresh pasta as well as traditional Latin fare.  And, of course, there are burgers, hot dogs and fries, and a salad bar among other options. Though the menu is international in flavor, much of the food comes from sources close to campus.  Using locally sourced food minimizes the eatery’s impact on greenhouse gas emissions, supports local food producers and allows WUSTL to maximize the amount of fresh food available to the campus community.  For students, faculty and staff with special dietary needs, a variety of vegetarian options and foods prepared without gluten is available and clearly marked, and a kosher kitchen is located on site for kosher-cooked meals.
