"Actually working in a hydroponic farm makes it so real. That’s why I’ve been so thankful that Chartwells decided to invest in students. Chartwells has invested so much into me, and they want to make sure that students here get involved in things they’re passionate about."

"I absolutely love this job–it's not considered a job for me, this is like a fun after-school activity. It's one of the greatest things I've done in this university: just having other people eat freshly grown, organic, crops that we grow."

"[Fresh Ideas] had a vision of sustainability for the future they wanted to see: not only making and crafting food, but also producing their own food in an efficient, sustainable way...This is a way to enjoy the flavors of fresh produce like maybe you never have before–this is like having a farmers market right on campus and something that your friends and classmates have had a hand in growing."
“An important piece for Sodexo is our ‘Better Tomorrow Plan’ [which] specifically focus on individuals, our communities, and our environment…Freight Farms has given us a great opportunity to have that engagement with students on a higher level, especially with sustainability.”
