“Throughout the years the food has become increasingly better,” Resident Assistant Ashley White said. “The addition of Truckee Bagels last year and the new produce company this year has changed how I view cafeteria food.”
The school cafeteria receives its food from Sodexo, a food management service, and started a new partnership this year with Fresh Point, a produce company from Turlock, California.
Zendner has been working for Sierra Nevada College since 2007.
“We’re using Sodexo’s ‘ideas’ but implementing different ingredients. Fresh Point offers us more organic produce and a lot more variety in the produce that we can order, as opposed to before when we had the same apples, same bananas, you know just the same stuff every time,” Zendner said. “I am now able to get ahold of plums, nectarines, pears and different things like that.” Zendner admits that although Fresh Point has helped improve cafeteria food, there are still some pushes to be made.
“I’ve been really getting after the produce company because there has been some stuff I haven’t liked. I’m trying not to just accept everything they send and make sure that it is actually good stuff,” Zendner said.
People assume that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We are told this growing up because breakfast corporations want us to buy their food. However, the trick is to eat when you are hungry. If you wake up and are still full from last night’s late meal, then wait until you digest that meal to have breakfast.
-Don’t Mix Fats with Carbohydrates.
Our favorite foods usually consist of some type of bread and some type of fats for example pizza, grilled cheese and quesadillas. Scientifically, carbs and fats do not combine together to break down in your body to digest. Don’t think this stops you from eating carbs and fats altogether. It’s okay to eat carbs, and it is okay to eat fats, just eat them separate from each other!
Students were lured away from the monotonous stress of midterms week by the crackle of crispy bacon and the savory promise of maple syrup to Patterson Hall, where the Student Government Association (SGA) served pancakes to accompany stump speeches.
Sierra Nevada College branded merchandise is proudly displayed. There are sweatshirts, T-shirts and sweaters hanging to the left and right. Brightly colored Big Truck hats are presented in eye popping stacks in the center of the room. Welcome to the Sierra Nevada College campus store. Although there’s a lot on display, sales figures collected from Aug. 19 to Nov. 13 show that patrons are most likely to leave with a Coca Cola and a Snickers Bar.
Sierra Nevada College’s Prim Library opened its doors on Monday, Oct. 21, to the The Lab @ SNC, which is the second location for local business I.V. Coffee Lab. Conveniently situated in the back corner of Prim, where the neighboring printers dull the grinding of beans and the buzz of the espresso machine, the shop has an air of professionalism and homegrown pride sometimes missing from Incline Village.
Bound to Sierra Nevada College dining services by meal plans or convenience, students frequently complain about the quality of cafeteria food. An Eagle’s Eye poll confirms this campus discussion, as 70 percent of the students surveyed are rarely satisfied with cafeteria food.
