Local Food Film Series

When: Every Monday from 6-8 PM

Where: Noble Hall Room 130

Cost: Free!

The Local Food Film Series hopes to inspire students and community members to become more involved with their local food system by learning about the different aspects of a food system from production to distribution and everything in between.

By showing films centered around the different components of food systems, and discussing what we find, the Local Food Film Series hopes you can walk away with a deeper understanding of where your food comes from. Be inspired to help support local farmers, ranchers, and local food systems in whole. Come out this Monday, (March 11th) from 6:00-8:00 in Noble 130, to get your minds in the soil!

Come one, come all and get your free thrift shopping in for the week! The Free Store aims to close more of the waste cycle on campus, in turn save water, and help students eliminate the financial  burden involved in expanding their wardrobes.

The Free Store takes donations on a rolling basis. Just stop into the Environmental Center to drop off your clean, laundered, and undamaged items. We take everything from clothing, to kitchen items, to small appliances, and more!
