Red & Black Cafe Financial Aid Contributions Approach $50,000

RBC LogoFor almost a decade beginning in 2005, we have been contributing 1% of our gross sales from the Red & Black Cafe to support financial aid.  Our 1% For Aid campaign has now just reached over $48,000.  These funds have been restricted to financial aid and since 2009 we have specifically directed these funds to the Johannah Justin Jinich ’10 scholarship, (a cause dear to our hearts).

As we begin our 12th year in business, we appreciate all the support we’ve received from students and will continue to support you.

Farm Fresh is Back

Once again we are excited to feature locally grown produce from Treat Farm in Orange, CT.

Just a 1/2 mile down the road from owner, Ed Thorndike ’89, we are able to get farm fresh tomatoes, Zephyr squash, sweet corn and other vegetables.

Look for these veggies on your sandwiches and in your specials at both WesWings and Red & Black Cafe.

 

 

 

As small local businesses ourselves, we know the importance of supporting farms like Treat Farmtre6
