Annual Sustainable Dinner

As part of Hunger Week, an annual Sustainable Dinner is sponsored by Loyola's Gannon Center for Women & Leadership.  To honor the land and be mindful that it provides for us, the Gannon Undergraduate Scholars plan a meal reflective of the fall midwest growing season.  The dinner is held in November which requires careful planning to ensure the food served is sourced locally.  Squash soup, green salad mix, sauteed kale with cheese, apple cider and pies plus Growers' Guild Loyola Tea are examples of the seasonal meal served at this amazing dinner.

During the dinner, guest speakers share their relationships with the seasons, the environment, responsibility to growing food in ethical ways to ensure the needs are met for all.
