Message from Dining Services – October 20, 2021

COVID-related food service supply chain interruptions are a new (and daily) reality. Our team is dedicated to create varied menu offerings, and are working with our suppliers — and with our purchasing department — to ensure the best possible product access each day. Unfortunately, our suppliers can only deliver products they have in stock, and even if those products are in stock many of our suppliers are facing labor shortages that mean they do not have warehouse workers or drivers to get these products to us. Given these challenges, menu items are subject to changes that have not normally been necessary and missed deliveries can compromise variety.

We will continue to take on these challenges, our commitment to providing each student, faculty and staff member with the food, service, and hospitality they want and need remains the same.
