Modifications to dining services

Aug. 31, 2020

Dear students on the Knight All-Access meal plan,

St. Norbert College Dining Services is here to enhance your residential campus experience and we want to be responsive to your wants and needs. Balancing safety while continuing to offer menu favorites in a timely way is our commitment to you. The way we have historically served you has had to change; we realize this is vastly different. Nevertheless, our primary goal is still to serve our student customers a handmade meal plan of value.

To ensure clarity, please allow me the opportunity to update you on our service plans. We will be pivoting to create a safer, community-oriented meal environment after Labor Day.

Here’s what you need to know beginning Tuesday, Sept 8:

Menu enhancements: You asked, we listened

  • Welcome back pizza for lunch and dinner
  • Plated composed and veggie salads at the 3rd Street Deli
  • More fresh fruit options in the center island, like grapes and strawberries

Meal swipes: Move about freely and keep your spacing

  • Swipe for carryout, dine in or patio seating
  • You can come back for seconds; clean plates & clean hands upon re-entry.
  • You don’t have to commit to any one service line, just maintain your safe distancing.
  • Bemis will be setup with pre-built grab and go meals for speedy weekday service

Speed of service: If you have flexibility in your schedule, join us at an off-peak time

  • Check out Bemis if you need to eat on the fly with speedy pre-built grab n go meals
  • Hours of operation have been expanded to prevent congestion at peak times:
    • 7:30-10 a.m. for breakfast - 9 a.m. is a great time to come
    • 10:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. for lunch - Before 11:15 a.m. and after 12:30 p.m. are great times to come
    • 4:30-7:30 p.m. for dinner - before 5 p.m. or after 6:30 p.m. are better times to come
      • Dinner closes at 7 p.m. on Friday and Sunday
    • Brunch remains 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on weekends

Phil’s/Dale’s/Ed’s: Expanded hours and mobile pre-order (iPhone or Android) to avoid the lines

  • Dale’s: Mobile pre-ordering is live. Sunday and Wednesday wing specials are back.
  • Phil’s: Mobile pre-ordering is live Sept. 1.
  • Ed’s: Mobile pre-ordering will be live after Labor Day.
As always feedback is encouraged and welcome!

Be well!
