Cal Poly's Academic Senate, the governing body for the university's faculty, voted Tuesday overwhelmingly in favor of removing a Chick-fil-A restaurant outlet from the university's San Luis Obispo campus. The resolution was proposed in light of recent news the fast food chain's charity arm, the Chick-fil-A Foundation, continues to give money to anti-LGBTQ organizations. The vote by the Academic Senate comes after another university and two cities moved to block Chick-fil-A outlets from opening in recent weeks due to the company's perceived opposition to the LGBTQ community.

Playing with Fruit!

Five California Rare Fruit Growers joined Fr. Ian in his kitchen with their exotic fruits, grown at their homes. Kobacha, JuJuBes, Blood Oranges, Cara Cara Oranges, Passion Fruit, Chirimoya, and Farro (a grain)...and maybe a few others in there somewhere...were sliced, diced, blitzed, baked, and more importantly EATEN!! Everyone played with fruit in Fr. Ian's kitchen and shared a meal among friends, and of course with wine. This half-hour will encourage you to do some playing with rare fruits with your friends!

California-based Habit Burger is getting national attention. The fast-food chain that got its start in Santa Barbara County has the nation's best tasting burgers according to one high-profile publication.

For a new Consumer Reports survey, subscribers were asked to rate the taste of various burgers on a scale of one to ten, and Habit Burger came out on top beating popular burger competitors like In-N-Out and Five Guys (#2 and #3 respectively).
