For A Strawless Ocean

If you haven’t heard yet, we at University Of New Haven Dining have reduced the amount of straws on campus in an effort to lower our plastic usage and waste. It’s estimated that we use over 500 million straws a day in America (ecocycle.org) and we are putting our oceans and marine life in danger.

What does that mean for us? At Marketplace & Food on Demand we have eliminated straws but have no fear, you can still have a drink to go. All you have to do is put a coffee cup lid on the Pepsi cup and it makes for a throw back sippy cup. All locations that serve smoothies (i.e. Jazzmans and N’rgize) will distribute straws with a smoothie purchase.

Please join us in the fight to preserve our oceans, keep the waters clean, and wildlife happy.

 

Breakfast just a little bit longer…

University of New Haven dining is proud to announce that we will be serving a limited breakfast bar at the hometown station in Marketplace up until 2pm everyday! We realized that not everyone can make it to breakfast or simply just want breakfast food for lunch and we want to provide that for you. Come down and get your eggs on..

To go..or not to go?

We at the Marketplace want to give you all the best experience we can, so with that, we would like to refresh you on our current dining hall policies.

First, as you enter the Marketplace dining area we ask that you swipe. we know that some of you have friendly gatherings, one on ones with the faculty on campus, or just want to hang out in between classes, if you’d like to do those things we ask that you please go to the mezzanine level of the Marketplace.

Second, to go containers are meant for swipers who wish to dine elsewhere. If you are planning to dine in the Marketplace, a to go container is not necessary. If you would like to dine here first and have a little something for later, we ask that you please swipe again for the container.

Please understand that we are not trying to be complacent but be compliant with our policies, we thank you in advance.

Stay gold..and blue
