LA 2024 Olympic Village restaurant Bruin Plate certified as four-star green restaurant

LA 2024’s proposed Olympic and Paralympic Village ready to deliver outstanding Games experience for athletes

LOS ANGELES - UCLA’s Bruin Plate - one of four restaurants and four casual dining facilities within LA 2024’s proposed Olympic and Paralympic Village - has been awarded the top four-star rating by the Green Restaurant Association, underlining the outstanding Games experience awaiting the athletes of the world at LA 2024.

Following other sustainable food service accolades, the latest rating signifies that eating at UCLA Dining Service’s Bruin Plate, which opened in 2013, has a lower environmental cost than meals elsewhere. UCLA is only the third university in the nation with a four-star Certified Green Restaurant designation.

LA 2024 Vice Chair and Director of Athlete Relations Janet Evans said: “On behalf of LA 2024, I’d like to applaud UCLA for Bruin Plate’s latest achievement. We are beyond thrilled to offer the athletes of the world not only state-of-the-art living, training and medical facilities at the LA 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Village, but also top-quality and sustainable dining and nutrition options to fuel them throughout the Games.”

The Green Restaurant Association credited Bruin Plate, which serves more than 5000 meals a day, with 108 sustainable practices, from reducing waste by nearly 50 percent through recycling to including locally sourced and organic foods in its menu.

As part of its residential dining program, UCLA operates eight restaurants serving an average of 30,000 meals per day, and prepares a variety of fresh, healthy and delicious meals in comfortable dining rooms for all residents. Each of UCLA’s restaurants has the capacity to serve more than 100 meals every six minutes, positioning the facilities to meet and exceed athletes’ nutritional needs in 2024.
