Marshall University is going local to put on a campus feast.

Called the "100-Mile Meal," the Thursday bounty is free to students who have a meal plan and $10.70 for the rest of the Marshall Community.

As the name suggests, the dinner will be sourced within 100 miles of the Huntington campus. The idea is to support area growers and to promote a stable, sustainable economy.

Casey Underwood is president of Marshall's Student Association of Nutrition and Dietetics. She said the menu includes chicken and dumplings and smoked ham from Kentucky, mashed potatoes from Ohio, and baked goods from a Huntington bakery.
