Campus Dining participates in event to support California Women in Agriculture

SAN LUIS OBISPO – In early September, Cal Poly Corporation helped raise more than $18,000 for San Luis Obispo County California Women in Agriculture (CWA). Two of Cal Poly’s Campus Dining chefs, Darrell Janes and Jeremy Jones, competed in the seventh annual Burgers and Brews Festival and Competition.

The cook-off event raised funds for CWA 4-H, Future Farmers of America and collegiate agricultural scholarships. The Cal Poly Corporation, the auxiliary organization for Cal Poly, is dedicated to supporting the lives of students – and the Burgers and Brews event provided an effective way to foster student success.

The festival highlighted local businesses and locally-grown foods, while supporting collegiate scholarship and agricultural advocacy. Chefs Janes and Jones served their own unique burger recipes to guests and judges. Cal Poly beef was also provided in partnership with the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences.
