two students hand out samples of BU Dining Service's clam chowder at Boston Harbor Fest


"We're all out!" announce Kayla Stellick, (Questrom'20), left, and Tyler Ivester (ENG'19) after the two finished handing out samples of BU Dining Service's clam chowder during Boston's Harborfest Chowderfest at Downton Crossing July 2, 2019. The team served up 1,ooo samples by the time the twenty gallons of chowder ran out by 1:10. "Some people said they'd vote for us just for the composting factor," said Scott Rosario. The BU Dining Services team used compassable spoons and cups, and offered a place to toss them so they could be properly composted later as well.
