Clean Plates at State weighs in on food waste

It’s dinner time at Case Hall on the Michigan State University campus. Students have endless options of food items at the nine on campus cafeterias. “I had the honey chicken with rice and brussel sprouts, mozzarella sticks and cantaloupe,” senior, Ellen Dipietro, said. “I ate it all”

Elizabeth Lytle, a department aid at the residential housing services on campus, doesn’t care what’s on the menu. She wants to know what’s on the plates after dinner.

Your name will get you free Starbucks

A new promotion is taking place at the three Starbucks locations on campus, all thanks to just having a first name. Each location will have a chalkboard placed at the register. If your name is written on that board, you get any coffee you’d like, for free! Don’t be too worried if you have a unique name, it is ran through an MSU database system too randomly choose. “All the staff, students, and faculty is all included, so it’s not like we pick the most basic names,” supervisor, Samantha Diamond said.
