‘Wichcraft: The Rachel sandwich

Last semester we questioned Cafe Mac’s decision to serve us Rachel sandwiches. But, upon further investigation, we realized that the Rachel sandwich is, in fact, food… not humans.

Welcome to ‘Wichcraft! We Rachels are here to bring you the latest news on sandwiches at Macalester. Satirically, that is. Because as we all know, sometimes you just have to get creative at Cafe Mac.
