Customer Spotlight: Emory University

Written by Cafe Campesino on Jun 1, 2010 in Customer Spotlight, NEWSLETTER |


Emory University is one of Café Campesino’s newest customers. A private research university with more than 12,000 students, Emory describes its community as being “inquiry-driven, ethically engaged,” and committed to working “collaboratively for positive transformation in the world.” Its main campus is in Atlanta, but it still maintains a campus in Oxford, Georgia, where it was originally founded in 1836 that today instructs about 750 students. Café Campesino came on board at Emory’s main campus earlier this year in the Cox Hall Food Court, which offers students, faculty and staff a wide selection of foods from local producers. Offering local or sustainable foods is a part of Emory University’s vision to source 75 percent of its food for hospitals and cafeterias from local or sustainable food sources by 2015. In addition to Cox Hall Food Court, you can also find Café Campesino coffee in Cannon Chapel and at the Green Bean Coffee Cart, a student-run coffee cart that is committed to Fair Trade.

Café Campesino is thrilled to be at Emory University and building relationships not only with Emory Dining, but also students, faculty and staff. In fact, Café Campesino welcomes its first Emory intern this summer, rising senior, Caroline DeMitchell, who will be working on our newsletter archiving system as well as organizing a Fair Trade Book Club in Atlanta. Thank-you Emory for introducing us to Caroline and for keeping Fair Trade and sustainability at the forefront in Atlanta!
