CSU, Chico Residential Dining Program Wins Coveted National Award
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
David Stephen, Director
University Housing & Food Service
The recognition marks the University’s first attempt to gain national recognition through this contest and places CSU, Chico second only to Xavier University in Ohio, which claimed the Gold Plate Award.
Awards are determined by a national panel of college and university food service experts. Each campus program is judged in five categories: menus, merchandising and presentation, marketing, nutrition and other program/services. The Residential Dining Concepts category is the most rigorous due to the complexities and demands associated with operating a residential dining program.
On average, the Sutter Residential Dining Center and Café serves more than 15,000 meals each week. Through the end of April, more than 209,000 meals have been served this academic year. The center is run by the Associated Students Campus Dining Program and University Housing and Food Service.
University Housing accommodates 2,150 residential students in residence halls, thematic houses and apartment-style facilities.
