Commencement strawberries donated to Nashville Zoo

Posted in NEWS on Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

The Vanderbilt Chancellor’s Office donated leftover strawberries from the 2013 Strawberries and Champagne Commencement event for the first time to the Nashville Zoo. Staff from the Sustainability and Environmental Management Office (SEMO) organized the donation and delivered the strawberries to the zoo after Commencement events concluded. The Zoo’s elephants and lemurs enjoyed the strawberries at lunch the next day. The donation of the strawberries prevented the leftovers from being wasted and sent to the landfill and helped the zoo to offer an unexpected tasty treat to the animals!
