Tickets for Cajun-themed to-go dinners will be sold for $10 each through Thursday, Nov 1, and will be available for drive-through pick up from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9, on Vista Drive west of the student center. The meals will be prepared by ARAMARK, SFA's food-service partner, and will consist of Cajun chicken and sausage jambalaya, green beans, cornbread, hot sauce and a chocolate chip cookie.
