Chef in the Garden
Each summer, members of the GW community can apply for this unique, eight week cooking class with University Chef Rob Donais. You can learn basic kitchen skills, as well as seasonal cooking techniques with fresh ingredients.
Even if you don’t register for the course, you can still learn from Chef Rob through a series of instructional videos. Hungry for oatmeal, soup or salad? You can find these, and more recipes.
Each fall GW hosts Food Day, a week of celebrations and education to help the entire university community better understand nutrition and wellness. Through a series of events, you can learn more about healthy, affordable and sustainable food.
Apple Day is GW’s annual tradition that supports local farmers and celebrates the apple harvest. At various locations across campus, you can pick up free locally grown, sustainable apples with healthy recipes.
GW is partnering with student organizations, the Office of Sustainability, our campus food provider and other interested parties to increase the sustainability of food on campus, through initiatives like Meatless Mondays.
Every Wednesday from April to November, you can stop by Fresh Foods Market right on our Foggy Bottom campus, outside of the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro stop. Choose from a variety of fresh produce and other products from local farmers.
A key event during Food Day celebrations, this Pop-Up Market is an opportunity for the GW community to support the larger city we live in. D.C. residents can take home fresh food, learn from University Chef Rob and meet with GW medical staff.
