Off campus food can be allowed with approval

According to an article recently published in the “UVU Review,” campus food services  does not allow any exceptions to their rule barring food from outside sources being brought onto campus, but this is simply not true.

All that needs to be done to arrange for off-campus is a signature from Director of Food Services, Val Brown, who has an open door policy.

“I approve around two requests for outside food a week,” Brown said. “As long as the request is justifiable through a club, I have no problem allowing that food be brought on campus.”

Although food services will happily allow food on campus for special reasons, it is crucial to remember the importance of supporting on campus food and catering services.

Using dining services extends past eating lunch and into helping to improve campus. Between the Food Court, Valley View Room and the satellite cafés, Dining Services strives to offer almost anything a student would want.

However, if a club wants showcase several different foods, then obtain a signature from Val Brown and start planning your event.

    they approve two requests a week. I want proof. Sounds like crap to me. We struggled with them for ages and they were not working with us.

    Sounds to me like it’s not “They” so much as “Val Brown” who makes the decision. The off campus food issue isn’t SUPER important but nevertheless there is no process for deciding this. It’s just one guys who arbitrarily says Yea or Nay, without any criteria other than his own thoughts. That doesn’t seem very, I don’t know, democratic.
