Confinement-Free Food Purchases (Ongoing)


Confinement-free is a term used to describe food purchases where the animals were raised in an environment where they could freely roam, as opposed to being confined in an enclosed environment. This term may apply to meat, eggs or dairy farming. The University has taken confinement-free food purchases into consideration in purchasing eggs, chicken, pork, and beef. All local purchases of these products are confinement-free. Local purchases make up about 1 percent of the total purchases of each product.
