Important update to Resident Dining Weekend Hours of Service!
We have some news to share with our guests regarding Resident Dining hours of service for the spring of 2014!

On weekends during the past semester, Esker Dining Hall was the primary point of service for traditional, all-you-care-to-eat dining. Spring semester will be a little bit different than the fall. Drumlin Dining Hall will be open for lunch and dinner on Saturdays and Sundays. Concurrently, Esker Dining Hall will be closed on Saturdays and open for dinner on Sundays. Here’s a snap shot of the hours.
 
 
Drumlin Dining Hall
Esker Dining Hall
Fridays
11:00am-1:30pm
8:00am-6:30pm
Saturdays
11:00am-1:30pm and
4:00pm-7:00pm
Closed
Sundays
11:00am-1:30pm and
4:00pm-7:00pm
4:00pm-6:30pm
These hours do not impact Prairie Street Market or Erbert & Gerbert’s Bistro at Drumlin Market. In the fall of this year, the hours of service will “flip flop”, with Esker being the primary point of service on the weekends.

Project: Clean Plate

Project: Clean Plate starts next week. But what IS Project: Clean Plate?

Project: Clean Plate is a program to benefit the Whitewater Food Pantry and to demonstrate the amount of food waste in our halls.

Each week we will "weigh the waste" by scraping food waste at the dish return rather than sending it on the conveyor system. This program is designed to decrease food waste. Based on the amount of decrease in the waste, UW-W Dining Services will make a donation on behalf of the students to the Whitewater Food Pantry.

This event takes place each Tuesday in November at lunchtime in Drumlin and Esker Dining Halls. The first Tuesday is used as a "benchmark" for the amount (in lbs) of food waste. We will use that also to extrapolate the amount of food wasted in a day, a week, etc as well as to measure the amount of food waster per person during that meal period.

We'll be posting weekly updates so you can keep track of how much food is wasted.
