Doe Dining Commons

At Kimball Union Academy, we think food is pretty important. Most of our meals are served in Doe Dining Commons, which is open for three meals a day on weekdays and Saturdays, and on Sundays for brunch and dinner. Our food is made from scratch using local ingredients by SAGE Dining Services.

Our menus are big on variety and inspired by everything from international cuisine to food trucks. We also focus on fresh, local ingredients from New England and you’ll find food grown right on our campus. Try the beloved chocolate milk from our local McNamara Dairy! We accommodate all food allergies and dietary restrictions.

We also gather for family-style meals when faculty members host a group on a rotating basis throughout the year, providing them an opportunity to meet new friends and adult members of the community.

Additional Dining Options

The School Store in the Barrette Campus Center also offers students a range of food items including pizza, breakfast sandwiches, sushi, hot and iced coffee selections, and snacks. Students can pay with cash or charge their student escrow accounts with their KUA ID cards.

Sustainable Dining

List of 5 items.

  • Pork Program

    KUA diverts food waste from the landfill, connects students to their food supply, and reduces the school’s carbon footprint through the Farm Team’s Pig Program. 
  • Composting

    Any food waste not diverted to the pigs through the Pig Program is composted.
  • Ugly Mug Coffee

    The community supplies coffee mugs and the savings of not buying paper cups and plastic lids is used to shift our coffee purchases toward organic, fair trade, or source-certified coffees.
  • Campus-Raised Eggs

    In 2020, 50 pullets began laying eggs to help supply eggs to the dining commons.
