Students at The College of Wooster will feel (and taste) the "L-O-V-E" when Kittredge Dining Hall reopens for lunch this fall after a one-year hiatus. An all-vegetarian menu will greet students
with Local, Organic, Vegetarian, and Environmentally friendly foods that have a smaller carbon footprint than some of the foods offered in other campus dining facilities.
"Kittredge will feature the same great relaxing environment, but the menu will change," said Chuck Wagers, director of dining services, who "cooked up" the idea as a way to accommodate the largest first-year class (an estimated 644 students) in school history. "The facility will feature a
seasonal menu with as much locally grown, in-season produce as we can find."
Hours will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with Friday's time slot reserved for Wooster's popular Soup & Bread program, which enables students to eat a lighter lunch and donate the surplus of their meal-plan money to benefit local, national, and international hunger organizations.
Also coming to campus this fall are “Scot Dogs,” locally made hot dogs served on a brand new bright and shiny stainless steel sandwich cart, à la New York City (but without the crowds). Look for the cart, featuring all-beef hot dogs and sausage sandwiches, chips, and beverages, to be located on a convenient walkway or street corner on campus. Cash, COW Cards and Flex Dollars will be accepted at the cart. In addition to weekday lunch service, the Scot Dogs cart may appear at public gatherings, such as athletic events, Lunch-on-the-Lawn, and campus receptions.
"We think this is an effective and exciting way to address the increased demand that we anticipate over the lunch hour this fall," said Wagers. "Students, faculty, and staff will have more options than ever."
