A first-year student at Adrian College was a lucky winner in a recent Sodexo campus dining promotion titled, “Dishing Out Dreams Sweepstakes.”

Luna Ferdausi, a computer science major out of Detroit, was recently named one of 19 randomly selected student winners in the dining company Sodexo’s “Dishing Out Dreams Sweepstakes” as part of its fall resident dining promotion series. This national prize sweepstakes gave students across the U.S. a chance to win $500 donations. The donations are made in the student’s name to a food-related charity of their choice.

“We here at Sodexo Adrian College are very pleased to have a second national sweepstakes winner in less than three years,” said Nicholas Moorehead, General Manager Adrian College Sodexo. “Having the opportunity to provide both of our students with a great prize while donating to organizations that help solve food insecurity issues is rewarding for us as a company and provides our guests with a chance to take home a great prize. We look forward to future opportunities to provide the student body something that is both fun and philanthropic at the same time, as also congratulate Luna [Ferdausi] on her win and choice of charity.”

Ferdausi said she selected Feeding America as her charity beneficiary because her donation will be distributed across multiple locations in the United States.

In addition to the charity donation, Ferdausi received a $575 Best Buy gift card to use toward a new tablet, something she currently does not own.

“I never win anything, so I was surprised when I saw the email,” Ferdausi said.

Featured at more than 600 Sodexo-managed colleges and universities nationwide, Sodexo’s fall resident dining promotion series included several dining showcase events for students in addition to the “Dishing Out Dreams Sweepstakes.”

The last time an Adrian College student won a Sodexo sweepstake was in 2021 with Derek Bell winning a $2,500 donation prize and giving it to the Lansing Capitol Area Salvation Army. As part of the prize, Bell took home a Canon Powershot SX70 digital camera.

Operating in 56 countries, Sodexo serves 100 million consumers each day with a work force of 412,000 employees.
