Posters at UWMC highlight sustainable food options

Ever wondered which food suppliers at UW Medical Center's Plaza Cafe might provide local, organic, and sustainable products? Come and see the new poster located at the main entrance of the cafe to help you learn more.

UWMC’s Technology and Wellness Manager Charlotte Furman worked with a UWMC intern, as well as interns and staff at UW Sustainability, to develop a big picture look. The 3’x 4’ poster, mounted on the wall at the main café entrance, displays information about Plaza Café food vendors, with pictures and color coding denoting local, organic and sustainable suppliers.
