webinar | Clark university

In January 2016, Clark University and Sodexo brought the LGM to campus to provide students the freshest greens possible. Since then, they have been growing hyper-local produce successfully just feet from where it's served.

On August 10th, 2017 we interviewed key project stakeholders including Heather Vaillette, the District Manager with Sodexo, Michael Newmark, General Manager of Clark Dining Services, and Nick Pagan, a graduate student and the primary operator of the Leafy Green Machine on campus.

This webinar covers:

  • Introduction to Freight Farms & our food service offerings

  • Benefit of having the LGM on a school's campus

  • Clark University & Sodexo's motivation and goals for bringing the LGM to campus

  • Site preparation, delivery, logistics, and training for a university

  • How Clark University successfully integrated the program into Sodexo's Dining Services

  • How they've been engaging and educating students with this initiative

  • Day-to-day operations of the LGM by Clark's student freight farmer
