Supporting Local Farmers
In an effort to support local business and provide fresh local produce to their customers, Sodexo purchases their produce from approved, local purveyors, such as Limehouse Produce. Some of the produce sold through this company comes from local farmers.
Recently, Sodexo Chefs, from surrounding areas, visited Rosebank farm. The tour of the farm was conducted by Sidi Limehouse, who takes great pride in farming. The Rosebank farm is one of the last working family farms on Johns Island.
Purchasing from local farmers impacts our economy and environment. Local businesses continue to operate, and the transportation of produce is minimized, which helps preserve our environment.
The newly renovated MUSC cafeteria is based on Sodexo’s Fresh Inspiration design. Wellness, Diversity, and Sustainability are the pillars of this design. We are meeting our goals to support local business, to protect our environment, and to serve our customers top quality food by purchasing locally.
