When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

Lawrenceville's Dining Services

Lower School, Circle, and Crescent students eat in the Irwin Dining Center, where each residential House has its own separate dining area. The Fifth Form eats in the Abbott Dining Room of the Upper House. Meal times may vary during the Winter Term to accommodate the needs of athletic teams. At Monday lunches, all students eat with their Academic Advisors. The Dining Services staff welcomes comments and suggestions from all members of the community.

Sustainable Food Project

In the fall of 2004, the Lawrenceville School launched its Green Campus Initiative, a holistic approach to campus sustainability. The Initiative focuses on campus energy, materials, land, and water use by applying methods that promote ecological literacy, sustainability education, and involving the broader community outside of the School. Lawrenceville’s aim is to become a leader that will inspire and guide other educational institutions toward sustainability.

Dining Services is a key element of the Initiative. During the past two years, students have been served meals that are not only healthy and delicious, but are also prepared in a manner that contributes to the conservation of our ecosystem.

Lawrenceville’s Executive Chef Gary Giberson has spearheaded several initiatives to “green” dining services including increasing the purchase of locally grown food (even some grown on campus) to reduce the School’s overall ecological footprint, contribute to the local economy, support local farmers, and bring students closer to their food sources to provide a unique and valuable educational experience. Giberson is also working to reduce trans fatty acids, high fructose corn syrup, and preservatives in food provided to students.
