Good things happen on Mondays

Orange Wrap students Mary Welkie, Laura Dragon and Rachel Mallory, provided samples of wild mushroom risotto to students in Sadler Dining Hall recently as part of the Healthy Monday’s ‘Try Me’ Initiative. Each month the “Try Me” campaign connects students to plant-based food alternatives that have health-promoting benefits. The project is a collaborative effort of Orange Wrap, SU Dining Services and the Healthy Monday ‘Meatless Mondays’ initiative.

Orange Wrap was created in 2005 as part of the Healthy Campus Initiative to provide nutrition education to students across campus. Orange Wrap educators are junior, senior and graduate nutrition majors who are selected, trained and supervised by a registered dietitian. The organization promotes pleasurable and in-tune eating, the adoption of nutrition guidelines for good health, and the prevention of eating disorders through a non-diet approach to nutrition and wellness on campus. Orange Wrap supports the Healthy Monday message through a variety of presentations on topics relating to nutrition and exercise. ORANGE WRAP members will give presentations in locations on campus, including in residence halls and classrooms. Orange Wrap is also available for presentations in the community.
