As we reach the end of this unique and at times challenging semester, we extend our sincere thanks to the students, faculty, and staff on campus who consistently adhered to the COVID-19 safety measures that we implemented at dining locations. Together we created a safe environment for all, including frontline dining staff, who thankfully remained COVID-19 negative throughout the semester. We are excited by the success we have had this fall and look forward to welcoming back even more students in the spring.

This semester we’ve balanced the competing demands of maintaining COVID-safe operations, providing the fresh from-scratch food you know and love, and ensuring that we uphold our values of sustainability and social responsibility. Throughout the fall we’ve maintained our commitment to supporting hunger-fighting organizations by making deliveries of surplus food to Safe Harbor Easton every Sunday. Just this week we learned that Lafayette was ranked top 10 for food and dining sustainability by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education. We’re incredibly proud of our local procurement practices and the strong partnership we’ve built with LaFarm that led to this ranking.

We will soon begin modified hours and closures at dining locations. As always, the most convenient place to get up-to-date hours of operation is lafayette.cafebonappetit.com.

Location Closure
Gilbert’s Cafe 11/20 after 4 p.m.
Food Truck 11/20 after 4 p.m.
Lower Farinon 11/21 at 10 p.m.
Upper Farinon 11/22 after 8 p.m.

From Nov. 23 through Dec. 6, Marquis Dining Hall will be open 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., serving students with meal plans who remain on campus.

We will serve up breakfast and a hearty Thanksgiving meal on Thanksgiving Day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Looking ahead to the spring semester, we ask that all students who will need a campus ID immediately begin the photo submission process, which will prevent delays in the spring. We also ask you to download the Transact mobile app for contactless payment and pickup options if you haven’t already.

From all of us at Lafayette Dining, we wish you happy and healthy holidays!
