Ron Moore, Director of Culinary Services


Dining Services is pleased to welcome Ron Moore back to Dartmouth as our Director of Culinary Services. Ron previously worked for the college from 1979 to 2000, when he moved to Chicago to become the Culinary Specialist at Wholefoods. In that position, Ron taught cooking classes for customers and oversaw staff culinary training. Ron plans to bring many of those training techniques here to Dartmouth.  Aside from working with DDS culinary staff, Ron  is also looking forward to working with the greater Dartmouth community.  On August 13th, Ron worked with the Wellness Office to offer a Basic Knife Skills class.

In his spare time Ron enjoys painting and sculpting. Look for his sculpted food displays for special meals at '53 Commons.

Don Reed - 2014 Sustainability Award Winner

The Dartmouth Sustainability Project awarded the 2014 Sustainability Award for Dartmouth Staff to Dartmouth Dining Service Associate Director Don Reed.  Sustainability Award WinnerDon has been instrumental for making dining at Dartmouth more sustainable.  His work with students and other departments has both reduced waste and supported the Upper Valley community.  With Don's guidance, DDS has added many local and regional products and sustainability has become a much larger part of all DDS purchasing decisions.  

Introducing DBA Rollover

DBA is part of the dining plans and is only available when dining plans are active.

Up to 100 dollars of DBA can rollover to the next term within the same academic year.  DBA carried forward from a previous term will be available during subsequent academic terms as an addition to the meal plan.  Any amount of DBA carried forward will not alter any meal plan pricing or requirements.  Any unspent DBA will expire with the end of spring term meal plans on Commencement Sunday. 

DBA Rollover & Leave Terms: Any DBA rolled over from the previous term will be available anytime meal plans are active, including during a leave term.  Unused DBA from a leave term will continue to roll forward until the end of the academic year.  All unused DBA expires on Commencement Sunday regardless of spring term enrollment.

For example:  a student has $105 in DBA left at the end of summer term.  $100 would rollover and be added to the DBA included with the fall term dining plan.  The same student then ends fall term with $75 in DBA and is not taking classes or living on campus during winter term.  This student would have $75 of DBA available during the leave term for visits to campus.  If the student does not use any of the $75 during the winter term, that $75 would again rollover to the spring term meal plan.  If that student had any DBA left at the end of spring term, it would expire on Commencement Sunday.
