7 Reasons To Talk About FOOD

Features from the spring 2017 issue of Gonzaga Magazine from Gonzaga University

Posted on

1. You gotta feed the giants.

By giants, we mean our 7-foot members of the Gonzaga Basketball team, which fought for the NCAA championship this year. Those men can EAT. Learn what our Athletics team does to support these Zags (Zack Collins and Przemek Karnowski).

2. We live our values in what we eat.

Whether it's care of the environment, supporting a living wage or being a champion for animal welfare, our values can be reflected in what we eat. Here's what Ethics professor Ellen Maccarone says about that.

3. We could all use a little reminder about moderation.

4. College students like to eat.

Gonzaga's new COG (circle of all Gonzagans) has ... count 'em ... SIX restaurant stations every day. And still, some students just want their Lucky Charms. See today's student cafeteria.

5. Gathering at the table offers more than a meal.

It provides community and connection. A Jesuit reminisces about Spokane's "snowmaggedon" and how a meal brought calm to the chaos. Plus, an alum shares a haunting moment from Nepal, and a student finds out what about concern's today's campuses have about food. See "Thoughtfulness."

6. College grads find amazing food-centered careers.
