Nutrition Education and Outreach

The Nutrition Education and Outreach Program (NEOP) is a residential dining program serving UC Davis' 7,000+ student residents. Our mission is to help our first-year residents learn to eat and live well!

Our programs are designed to help first-year residents navigate and familiarize themselves with their new campus food environment, while teaching basic knowledge and skills to independently manage their personal nutrition as they eventually transition to off-campus living. Our team of Nutrition Student Coordinators hosts a variety of learning opportunities and events to make nutrition and wellness fun and accessible for all!

We proudly partner with the Sustainability Education and Outreach Program, which facilitates programs for residents to develop an understanding of sustainability principles and apply this knowledge to make choices that support current and future environmental, social, and economic well-being.
