Cafeteria Food

Are you staff at UCLA? Then you could dine like this family did in DeNeve Plaza last summer in our dining halls affordably as part of a UCLA Dining Services pilot program. (Although please note, DeNeve is not part of the promotion). Source: Flickr/Audelising

As you may have surmised, I'm a major fan of delicious lunch time dining destinations that are easily accessible via walking and/or the campus shuttle. Thus, I'm pleased to report that UCLA Dining Services has launched a pilot program that charges ridiculously low but delicious! prices to UCLA staff (we're talking $3 for breakfast/$4 for lunch and/or dinner) to dine in what was described in one publication as "underutilized" dining facilities up on The Hill.

The dining halls can be such a great treat, especially since the food is delicious, nutritious,  as well as sustainably and responsibly sourced.

Earlier this week, our senior transportation planner, Matthew H, gave the food at Hedrick a thumbs up; he dined there on Tuesday.

Yours truly will be checking it out with Nurit, our campus sustainability coordinator, tomorrow and we'll be inviting along friends. Of course, we invite you to join us. Just email me offline at stritipeskul at
