Where the Health Can You Eat Around Here?

Dining recently hosted a Healthy Menu Tasting that was FREE to the campus community. The event was held at the Terra Fresca Restaurant in the University Center. From 3:30-5:00 PM students and campus members were served tasty and nourishing dishes from the new Spring Healthy Monday’s menu currently available at the campus dining halls, and several cafes. Even with a downpour of rain approximately 150 guests arrived & campus chefs were kept busy serving up items like: Green Curry Veggie Bowls, Eggplant Lasagna and Chipotle Seitan Fajitas. Campus partners including OPERS, Wellness Center, and our Health Center joined in for the afternoon and brought along resources and information to share with the crowd!
