As part of a student's educational experience, we teach them to become an advocate for their own needs. Our Bon Appetit staff are very receptive to student input and comments and are available at every meal and by appointment. In addition, there is a ASWU Food Service Committee comprised of staff and students who welcome conversations. Possibly your son is interested in serving on this Committee, as well. Please ask him to contact a Bon Appetit manager at his earliest convenience for more information and assistance with his dinner concerns.Best wishes,Cheryljanet hines wrote:
Dear Cheryl: I am writing to ask for somebody to address the food plan and quality of the food at Willamette. My son is a freshman and has lost 10 pounds which he can ill afford since beginning Willamette. He isn't particularly picky but he describes the food at dinner as being so unappetizing that he eats snacks in his room instead. He has no complaints about the lunches and says the food quality is quite good. Is there any way that we could either opt out of the mandatory dinners so that he could use the money to eat something off campus or is there a way to improve the quality of the food? He is on the highest food plan but still isn't getting adequate nutrition even when he supplements with going off campus for two or so dinners per week which is financially unexpected for us. Thank you for your attention to this important issue. Janet Hines415 381-3348
