07 Aug Food for Thought
If you’re looking for a meal or just a mid-day energizing snack, UofL offers plenty of options, with more eateries opening each year. In fact, we partnered with a new dining service provider, Aramark, this past summer, to offer even more selection for our students. The company is investing $48 million in dining services on all campuses and adding 22,000 square feet of new dining space. Look out for new offerings including Starbucks and Panda Express to join old favorites like McAlister’s, Chik-fil-a and Subway. In fact, when you’re on campus you’re never more than five minutes from someplace to grab a bite. Check the map to see just how close you are to your next meal. UofL partners with Sodexo to bring a number of affordable, popular eateries to campus. Check for promotions at louisville.edu/dining.
Eating Good Food
You can’t survive on pizza and Pepsi all semester. Aramark offers lots of foods to help you stay full and healthy. Make sure to check out the dining services website for nutritional information for campus restaurants, including calorie counts and nutritious meal options.
Aramark also marks their menus to indicate how certain foods fit the criteria for certain diets including gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian. There are also markings to show which foods are made with locally grown products and organic foods.
