Greasy burgers and french frys were off the menu yesterday at Columbia College, replaced with grilled peanut and jelly sandwiches in honor of Earth Day.
Columbia College served up the grilled sandwich because it saves water and green house emissions said Jeff Hamman, General Manager of Sodexo.
The school also had a green bar and all of their fruits and veggies came from local farmers to save on gas said Hamman.
Heather Sigfree, a Columbia College student said she was glad her school was taking the steps to help with the environment.
"We just started getting really involved. A lot of our faculty and dinning services really got heavily involved in this whole green initiative within this past year so I think it is a great thing that our school is catching up to the other schools" she said.
Columbia College was not the only school serving up grilled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Several south Carolina campuses and 80 other schools nationwide served up the yummy sandwich.
