FacultyStaffAppreciationDishup_AMTQ:  What happens to the leftovers from the Faculty and Staff Appreciation Celebration? 

A:  The food not eaten at the celebration is donated to St James for the free meals they serve to the homeless and hungry. Among other factoids related to the event--this is the first year the university is offering items from the Campus Store to service awardees who are celebrating milestone anniversaries of 10 years and up. Favors for the event are being provided by a local company, B-Bam, and made in Washington. This year's celebration features 180 service awardees, 11 faculty emeriti and seven staff retirees/honored retirees. The event was planned by Isa Chong and Tish Tolentino of Human Resources, Kaelen Burton of the College of Education and Kelly Alvarado of Student Development.
