Carolina Dining Services opened a new dining concept, 1.5.0, on January 11, 2010. For the past two years, 1.5.0. has served the UNC campus community the best local, organic and sustainable foods available in a quick and friendly style that follows through on our commitment to sustainability in our menu and our space.
1.5.0.’s seasonal menu features food that is locally grown and harvested and freshly prepared by chefs who are trained in culinary sustainability. Menu items also include organic produce and grains, cage-free eggs and poultry, grass fed beef, sustainable seafood and house-made breads, dressings and sauces. In addition to providing a healthy and sustainable retail dining option, 1.5.0. offers an engaging and educational experience for customers. An LCD screen displays farmer profiles, sustainable goals and eco-saving techniques that connect our customers to local farms and teach them how to incorporate sustainable habits into their daily lives.
The brand name, 1.5.0., was selected by members of Carolina Dining Services’ Student Dining Board and refers to our commitment to local food purchasing from within a 150-mile radius.
Sustainable food products support the long-term maintenance and restoration of ecosystems and agriculture for future generations. Local foods strengthen and support small farms and local economies, and purchasing locally reduces the amount of carbon output associated with transportation primarily by fossil fuels. Organic agriculture prohibits the use of toxic pesticides, fertilizers, irradiation, sewage sludge and genetic engineering.
