Food plays an important role in our lives, especially in college. Food affects people financially, nutritionally, and educationally. The dining halls at Virginia State University are a major source of meals and food for students. Needless to say, it is important that those students can eat at these dining halls. The problem with this is that the cost of campus dining is way too expensive for the limited options we have.
For many previous years, Anaheim High school has had a couple lunch system changes finally settling on two lunches, both being half an hour long. With both lunches only being half an hour long, for certain, more than one thousand students being in each, imagine the lunch lines! Making line to get your lunch takes already about fifteen minutes, half of a person’s time already, which leaves little time for a student to enjoy their so called meal and free time with friends.Based on other student’s experiences dealing with school lunch, one can rightfully assume that high schoolers would much rather hold in their hunger until after school rather than have the food being provided. There is not a single day that goes by in which a high schooler does not complain about the “worst than jail” food being served to them. This proposal will go into detail about why having an hour off-campus lunch can increase healthier eating habits between the undergraduates of Anahiem High School. In this layout, you will read about the issue of why we believe off- campus lunch would be a healthier choice for Anaheim High school students, you will also encounter our plan of how we intend to carry out this idea, what exactly needs to be done, with the help of who, and so on.
Why do colleges make their meal plans for students very costly? Are they too expensive? Are meal plans or college food healthy? Throughout the 21st century college has become more essential to attend and get a job after graduating. As compared to back then when with just a high school degree an individual could live off a decent job. However, as college became more important, the price of college also increased including, the cost of dorms, tuition, fees, books, and most importantly meal plans. Within all of the college expenses, the price of meal plans has also increased. Food is one of the most important necessity a human being needs to survive. Furthermore, the price is not the only factor, the health and regulations of a student’s meal plan also comes into play. Colleges provide a huge variety of food, most of it being fast food. The main research question
Looking at the numbers above, it is evident that as students progress throughout their years at UF, they tend to stay away from the meal plan. This makes sense, because as students progress through college they typically move out of the dorms and into apartments located off campus. This makes buying groceries and eating out at restaurants more convenient compared to staying on campus for their daily meals. Another interesting point drawn from this data is that while many students choose to opt out of their meal plans at the start of their second year, the ones that choose to keep it statistically
Changing the type of food to incorporate delectable choices for students that aids the young palate. Another topic of discussion would be school expenses for other educational supplies that have other important use like desk or electronics that would often need replacement from overuse. With the increase in savings, the school could also explore different options for those students who do not meet open campus policy requirements. Disregarding the teens who are not off campus during lunch to have similar advantages; thus, no food is wasted and the process will become
High school food options raise problems for students. School lunches may not be the cheapest option for the students or the district. According to "Duluth high school principals want to stick with open campuses," Duluth’s principal, Tonya Sconiers, opposes a closed campus because of the financial burden. This program change would cost the school approximately $239,000 to supply what would be needed for the new food policy. In addition, the lunches provided by the school lack quality. Students report the food as bland, and portion size is not enough to fuel for the entire school day. Numerous students involved in after-school activities cannot perform their best without a sufficient amount food in their stomachs. The food should provide energy for the students throughout the day. For low-income students, this lunch might be the only reliable daily meal.
While the Reitz Union is generally useful for me, it could use more healthier and oriental types of food. Many of my peers are vegan and there are not many options. The students that are vegan have to find other means of food, whether it is at another dining facility or off campus. In addition, it would be nice to have other oriental food dishes such as Jamaican or Cuban. The Reitz Union hours of operation of some of the food services are not useful. Some of the food services, such as Panda Express, close relatively early. Some students that have meetings at night will have to find some other means of food or get the food before their meeting. Despite the need for more healthier and oriental food options, the Reitz Union provides students with enjoyable
They attract a wide range of customers but the restaurant is a particular honey-trap for students, being in an easy location for students to reach – note question 1 of my customer survey to see the age ranges of customers. The size of the restaurant is quite small; it seats up to 50-60 maximum and the total seating space per my estimate is ~22m3. The main competitors are Shrimp and Burger, 0.2 miles away (see figure 1.2), 7Bone, 1.1 miles away (see figure 1.3) and The Handmade Burger Co. in West Quay, which is 0.7 miles
In this discussion paper, the Bay Path University Food Policy Council will discuss the changes that could and should be implemented in Bay Path University. This will be a three-pronged initiative: (1) we will implement immediate change for relatively low costs and with ease by the next school year, (2) change plans for the next few years that will gradually benefit the students, faculty, and staff; and (3) gathering necessary campus data to understand the needs of the Bay Path community and whether or not these goals are achievable.
For the third question each of the students had a different answer. For the fourth question all of the students answered with a strong 5. Last but not least, for the fifth question there was a variety of responses ranging from 2- 4. There are several ways to approach the food issue on campus. First, we can introduce food trucks, and line them up alongside the cafeteria. These food trucks will provide a wider choice when picking out what to eat. Second, we could put up brand name fast food restaurants like Burger King, Taco Bell, etc., in a central area like the cafeteria. Lastly, there could be caterers with a wide selection in their menus all around campus.
The food court revenues are declining because the food options are not appealing to MC students. Students like the options that are quick to order and obtained food, while maintaining the food quality. They like the option of customizing their foods. Therefore, build your own options can be very appealing to MC students because its very customizable, reduces the wait time to order and obtained the food and the quality of the food will be on par to what students are looking for. The environment is another factor that is lacking because its less attractive seating. The seating needs to be comfortable and attractive. A mix of booths and tables will create an attractive yet comfortable environment for student to sit and eat in. By changing the food
For Aramark to improve their performances of raising revenue from previous years, they should start off from changing their image to the students. Currently, UNLV students do not have an exceeding image about the Dining Commons for their bad reputations like food quality and service. They should first provide better quality food products; it would also help to increase the variety of the menu. This could involve a wider choice of fruits, vegetables, grains, sandwich, and other main course meals other than burgers and pizza. The Dining Commons can provide a small station targeting the healthy eaters who favor healthier menu choices; for example, energy bowls are demanded by many teens and young adults who like to eat healthy and
It’s hard to find something healthy, nutritious, and tasty at the university’s dining halls. Students normally just go to the “caf” and choose whatever looks good to them, and the health effects really start to add up.
Colorado State University is growing rapidly in size. My fellow peers and I have noticed the increase in population size, it is especially obvious when in a dining hall. Currently, we only have six dining halls on campus. I believe that the increasing study body calls for an increase in the number of dining halls available for proper accommodation.
Food -- it is a necessity. There is not one person who does not think about it on a daily basis. For a college student, the quality of food available is not always to the highest of standards. Many students can not afford to buy expensive food or eat out on a regular basis. Many times their only option left is to eat from their school’s dining halls.
