Proceeds from the veggie sale will help fund Food Studies summer internships. Dr. Theresa Moran, Food Studies Theme Director, notes that working with the Atrium Café showcases its green initiatives and is a great example of cross-college collaboration, adding that “sharing food and making a meal really brings everyone together!” The Atrium Café is a student-run business connected with the Ohio University Division of Food Sciences and Nutrition.

Francis McFadden, Atrium Café Coordinator and and Chief Culinary Officer, says that the Grover Market “brings together a diverse group of stakeholders at Ohio University, each in their own way dedicated to growing our local food system while improving the health of our community and economy.”

As Moran points out, “The Food Studies students come from all majors and colleges, so supporting the sale is supporting students who are passionate about shaping our food future in a healthier direction.”
