“FEEL GOOD” FOOD: THAT’S THE CARLOW ADVANTAGE

  • Food purchased from local farms, resulting in fresher, more nutritional meals
  • Cooks emphasize the use of fresh vegetables, fruits, and whole grains as featured ingredients
  • Milk from cows not treated with rBGH
  • Non-hydrogenated canola shortening used to minimize the presence of trans-fatty acids in deep-fried foods. Heart-healthy olive oil and canola oil are used in many of salad dressings.
  • Trayless dining decreases waste, conserves natural resources, and reduces the introduction of polluting detergents
