Letter to SGA:
“The food service this year seems to be a step up in quality from last year. However, in Christman, we are not able to choose what we do or do not want. I see many people throwing away the things that they were forced to take as a meal. It is extremely difficult to eat healthy when you can only receive vegetables when you also take a serving of pasta or potatoes with it. What I would like to see is for students to be able to make the decision of what to put on their plate, and what to leave for others, rather than waste the items that came with that option. Thank you for considering this potential for improvement.”
