At dinner tonight, there was a table set up to invite students to speak with our head chef, who had menus on hand and ideas to discuss about the food program. He was interested in hearing opinions and suggestions to improve the food based on our desires.
We have napkin notes here, on which students can write comments about the food, and the chefs respond with a note. This is great, but it was nice to have the ability to speak with the chef who is organizing the meals and who is open to suggestions.
Additionally, he assured me that soon we will have 1 vegan/vegetarian soup at all times :)
I was impressed with Bennington’s food program because although we have good food, this effort shows that the chefs are open to further improvements.
