Cowpie [Cafe] is built on the ideology that feeding the Warren Wilson community vegetarian, local, and organic meals is a top priority. With options like tempeh burgers, kale, and salad made from our very own garden, Cowpie makes every effort to keep up their standards. What has recently been in question is exactly how much of Cowpie’s produce is organic and how much of their produce comes from the Warren Wilson garden.
The general belief from the student body and faculty is that the food from Cowpie is largely local and organic. According to General Manager for Sodexo Brian O’Loughlin, the actual ratio of organic to non-organic products today is roughly sixty percent organic to forty percent non-organic.
O’Loughlin is responsible for how the budget of Gladfelter and Cowpie is distributed. He explained that with the recent inflation of food costs, some items have to be switched from organic to non-organic. ...
Many members of the Wilson community feel like Gladfelter and Cowpie are completely separate entities, but Sodexo owns and operates both kitchens.
