Analyzing the cafeteria options

Tyra Peters, Staff Reporter

Many students have specific diets they follow, whether they involve lactose intolerance, eating gluten free or they just don’t eat carbs or fried foods. But, given these limitations, students do have food options on campus.

“We are all for people coming in and talking about what they like,” said Mark Wagner, director of dining services.

Wagner, who has worked at Lakeland College for 14 years and has been the director of dining services for five years, worked at the American Club in Kohler, Wis. for 10 years prior to his coming to the college.

He explained that if a student does not prefer the food available on the meal line, he or she can come back to the kitchen and ask the cooks to make them something personally and explain that he or she is on a special diet.

Another option is the fruit and salad bar, which is underutilized.

“Anyone who wants to add anything new to the menu, we will absolutely do it,” said Wagner.

According to Wagner, the food options next year will get better and, over time, continue to get better. There may be a soft serve ice cream machine available and fresh fruit will be offered daily. Additionally, the Muskie Mart will be offering fresh fruit, mixed salads, and subs next year.

For more information about food options, contact Wagner or another member of Dining Services.
