The popular news Web site includes Bowdoin in its feature, "The Best College Food."

Education contributor Kathleen Kingbury's article highlighting excellence in collegiate cuisine notes Dining Service's local sourcing and points out that it pulled off a 100 percent compostable lobster bake at the outset of the academic year.
