Toward a Deeper Understanding of “Eating Locally”
Since we created our groundbreaking local purchasing program in 1999, the farm-to-table movement has gone mainstream. Bon Appétit has sought to go beyond just purchasing locally to create a program that can have broader impacts that support sustainability, social justice, and community resiliency.

When it comes to wellness, Bon Appétit’s focus is on simple, delicious food — that happens to be good for you. To support long-term health, we are bringing more plants to menus every day in a craveable way, while emphasizing healthy cooking techniques. When healthy food tastes good, nourishing your body and mind becomes the easy choice.
We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.
Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.

Bon Appétit at Rose-Hulman is fighting food waste and hunger by recovering surplus perishable food from our campus that would otherwise go to waste and donating it to people in need through The Catholic Charities Terre Haute Food Bank
Nutrition Facts Tables
We understand that many guests desire more specific nutrition facts information. To help you check the nutritional values of many of our basic café offerings, Bon Appétit has compiled This Online Guide
Please note that not all of these items are served on our menu each day.
The Well-Being Indicator® represents more than just numbers. It’s an at-a-glance guide to help you navigate your food choices by comparing the nutritional value of one dish to another. The more full the arrow, the more healthful the dish is for you.
Because we care about your health, we offer a holistic nutrition program that makes it easy to find the healthful options in the café.
