Usdan’s bringing back the to-go option, with minor strings attached:
In response to student input, the WSA has worked with Bon Appetit to develop and implement a trial “to-go” program from the Usdan Marketplace beginning Monday, April 14. The trial program has been designed to respond to students’ interest in taking food outside during the nicer weather and recognizes the limitations of the café’s current offerings. The program will be available M-F during lunch.
When you have your ID swiped as you come in to the marketplace, please let the cashier know you would like a “to go” box and you will have 5-10 minutes to collect your lunch in a recyclable “to go” container and a disposable cup. As you exit the marketplace, you can pick up your ID at the cashier and take your lunch with you.
In order to cover the costs of the to-go containers there will be a 50 cent charge in addition to the swipe of a meal or $7.50 in points or cash. The WSA and Bon Appetit ask for your assistance in making this program successful by taking only you what you plan to eat and not wasting food.
The program will be reviewed on a weekly basis during the rest of the semester to determine the feasibility of continuing the program and the WSA will continue to work with Bon Appetit to develop improved retail options for next year.
Sounds like a plan! Please don’t botch this.
