IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

  • Reusable Green Containers: The Café offers reusable meal containers for those who wish to use them. These containers are meant to be single-use, and then returned to the marked bins in the Café in exchange for a new one. If you have these containers in your department or office, please return them to the Café. The reusable container program is in danger of being discontinued due to the lack of containers being returned.
  • VMM Logos: Did you know that you can find several versions of VMM’s most up-to-date logo on the Communications & Marketing team page? Team members may download these logos for use in PowerPoint, Word, Outlook, etc.
