Vermont has a strong focus on both local and organic food, with many ongoing initiatives around the state including: co-op grocery stores such as City Market; local and organic farmers markets; farmer's co-op shares; urban gardens; the Intervale Center; and many more.

In addition to the state's efforts, UVM has also been committed to reducing its environmental impact from food purchasing by incorporating local, especially Vermont-made, organic, and sustainably raised and harvested food to the menus at its many dining facilities on campus.
