Students in the community engaged course SUST 3003: World on a Plate were treated to an exciting last class when famous chef and activist Jose Andres prepared his famous Paella for them all, which can be read about here 

“The course examined food history, science and industry, and also incorporated current issues in the global food landscape such as immigration and the undocumented food system as well as national security and food-related health issues.”  

The students in this course served with six different community partners: FRESHFARM, Martha’s Table, DC Central Kitchen, Food & Friends, FoodPrints at Francis-Stevens, and DC Greens. The 95 students served for a total of 813 hours throughout the semester.  

We thank Dr. Tara Scully for her community engaged scholarship in this class. Learn more about her work here. If you are interested in taking a Community Engaged Course check out this link here
