Collis Cafe may close at 2:30 PM on Fridays during the summer, but they will be reopening to sell produce and other local and regional products. Use your DBA or meal swipes to stock up on items from the Dartmouth Organic Farm and other farms and producers from throughout Vermont and New Hampshire.
Orientation dining plans for the Class of 2019 and other students participating in New Student Orientation are available starting Thursday, September 3rd. These plans cover up to 20 meals per week during the orientation period.
Returning student dining plans begin on Sunday, September 13th.
It's tempting to pile the plate high when your hungry, but how much will you actually eat? By raising awareness of how much food is discarded, Claire Beskin ’16, Francesca Governali ’18 and Margarita Ren ’18 hope to inspire other students to be thoughtful when filling their plates.
During dinner on April 22nd, these students organized a project asking students to scrape their plates into bins. After it was all done, they had collected 132 lbs. of compostable waste from 569 students – nearly ¼ of a pound per person.
When visiting the Class of 1953 Commons, diners normally put their dishes, napkins & trash on the dish carousel, and DDS staff members sort it between compostable waste, reusable dinnerware and the random bits destined to be recycled; very little ever makes it to a landfill, but there’s always room for more sustainable choices.
The Dartmouth Card Office is introducing GET Funds, a new way to track your dining plan spending (as well as DA$H and other accounts on your Dartmouth ID Card). GET Funds is available as a webpage and as an app.
