Saint Mary's says goodbye to unhealthful foods

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Wouldn't it be nice if everyone could say goodbye to frozen over-processed foods?

On Tuesday, Saint Mary's College endorsed the "Real Food Challenge,” a pledge to buy 20-percent "real food" by 2020.  The program encourages fresh produce, lean meats, and whole grains over pre-packaged frozen, boxed and canned items.

As part of that commitment, Saint Mary's dining halls served organic and vegetarian recipes.

Fennel and apple soup, couscous salad with dried cranberries and curried lentils were just a few of the items on the menu.

Saint Mary's is the first college in the country to commit to the "Real Food Challenge."
