Healthy Living-Dining Services - Carnegie Mellon University

You Are What You Eat

In addition to providing you with a wide variety of high quality dining options, Carnegie Mellon Dining Services is focused on educating students about the role that diet plays in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Our food icon program helps inform diners about their food choices. Food icons are displayed next to the food and/or menus.
