today was a little extreme.... no cups... no soda... no coffee... no hot water for tea... even for the commons, this was beyond the usual disappointment.

what kind of school allows their dining contractor to push that crap on students locked into a meal plan? for those underclassmen who don't have easy access to real food off campus, that just sucks...

i concur with everyone. as of late, it is extremely hard to feed myself here being a vegetarian. vegan corn dogs? id rather not, thanks. and what is with no comment cards? i guess if they kept them everyone would be flooding that board, especially tonight.

i guess we need to wait until the next ambassador day for us to get decent food.

Well, if they recycled the plastic, and they put it out every day, we'd actually win Recyclemania. . .

The food waste audit was conducted by Earth House with assistance from Dining Services and the Dining Services Committee.
It was a student project and generated data that shows that approx. 1000 pounds of food per week is wasted at the Commons.

Are you referring to plastic forks or other plastic items in the Commons. FYI - plastic forks can't be recycled by our recycling hauler.

RecycleMania results are officially out April 17th
