Food Sustainability: Green Bag Lunch and Learn Oct. 6

Alexander Adkins, general manager of The Grey Plume restaurant at Midtown Crossing, Jody Fritz of Tomato Tomato, and Ed Lube, general manager of Creighton University Dining Services and Sodexo, will be the presenters.

Come hear how YOU are affected, what you can do and why it matters in your life! Join the dialogue. Bring a simple lunch if you would like. Drinks and dessert (fresh fruit and seven-layer bars!) provided. Sponsored by Facilities Management, the Creighton Center for Service and Justice, and the Creighton Sustainability Council.
