Health & Wellness

For Your Health

Luther College Dining Services helps guests on our campus select delicious, nutritious and satisfying meals, snacks and desserts by highlighting well-balanced menu choices and providing nutritional information and tips to help guests make choices that fit their needs.

An important part of our focus on health and wellness is the use of seasonal menus, featuring fresh and healthy ingredients—many of which are grown by local or regional farmers. Every season has its own unique produce that is showcased in delicious signature dishes to highlight the distinct flavors and natural appeal of seasonal items. Enjoy healthy choices on your campus throughout the year.
