“Go For Green” Nutrition Education Program

The Hercules Dining Facility supports all diets, to include vegetarian, religious, low-calories and more. To promote a healthy lifestyle and in an effort to improve healthy eating habits, the DFAC participates in the “Go for Green” Nutrition Education Program.

This program uses a labeling system designed to prove a quick snapshot of the nutritional value of food choices in the facility. Food items are labeled in Green (Eat Often), Yellow (Eat Occasionally) and Red (Eat Rarely). The Healthy Herk Rock Plate easily identifies the healthiest meal offered during the meal period. Stop by and enjoy a meal with us!
