Planning for Healthy & Sustainable Catering at CWRU

Eating nutritious food while paying attention to current sustainability practices is a great way to foster health and well-being for all and to encourage a flourishing campus. Learn more about healthy catering considerations and sustainability practices in this catered two-part presentation series offered by the Office of Sustainability and the University Wellness Program. If you regularly order catering on campus, please join us to learn more about making catering choices that are healthy for people and the planet!

Sustainability Event & Catering Practices at CWRU

Stephanie Corbett, Director of Sustainability, will discuss CWRU's recycling, waste and composting processes and procedures and a customized green event checklist to help those on campus who order catering reduce event waste. Reducing waste helps reduce the University's carbon footprint.
