UMass ranked nation’s best campus food for the third straight year

Hampshire County

UMass Amherst celebrated its award-winning dining hall food Wednesday night.

For the third year in a row, the Princeton Review has ranked UMass dining as having the #1 Best Campus Food in the nation.

Local farmers and students were invited to the university’s Hampshire Dining Common to try out featured menu items – including tomato basil pizza and grilled caesar salads.

Part of what makes UMass dining so unique is the fresh ingredients used and locally sourced food. 

Princeton Review editor-in-chief Rob Franek told 22News, “Students that are graduating from UMass will understand the granularity of what it means to live a healthy and sustainable lifestyle when they’re here, and take that on in their lives afterward, and that value – in my mind – cannot be understated.”

UMass Amherst has the largest collegiate dining program in the country – serving six-million meals per year.
