Sodexo, I know you supply food to many universities across our great nation. I know you send surveys regularly to us through our Portals, asking us about our food preferences and selections. I know you say you try hard to offer us healthy alternatives and you say you use fresh ingredients.
I, however, have chosen just one thing to say to you, out of all that could be said:
First, you had all the cups of fruit, sushi, and sandwiches in a nice, large refrigerator in the Guillot. Then you moved it to the other side of the food court. That is understandable. Then you made the sandwiches smaller and put them in very loud, crinkly, clear plastic instead of the former cardboard boxes. The plastic is understandable; decreasing the sandwich size while keeping the price the same is not.
NOW YOU HAVE RELEGATED ALL THOSE SORTS OF FOODS TO A TINY CHEST REFRIGERATOR IN THE BACK OF THE FOOD COURT, WHERE I MUST FIGHT DOZENS OF OTHER STUDENTS TRYING TO GET FOOD FROM PIZZA HUT OR THE SUB PLACE JUST TO GET A SILLY SANDWICH.
And your crimes have not stopped there, either!
NO! Why should they? You pile atrocity upon atrocity!
You have ignored our surveys and turned a blind eye to the wants and needs of the college student community. You have used unripe bananas in your foods upon numerous occasions. You have diminished the quantity of our food. You have limited the selections of food available. You have crammed them all into a tiny refrigerator, so that one must stand for an inordinate amount of time before it, trying to find an item that had before been clearly distinguished by shelves from the others. Now we must rummage through salads and sushi in search of our tiny sandwiches. And when we have at last located them, you spring the most horrendous of your crimes upon us.
THE HAM SANDWICHES ARE GONE.
Dwalin's bemused query has become my battle cry. "Where is the meat?" I lament, as I am forced to subsist upon a tiny, white-breaded peanut butter and jelly sandwich in all its sticky glory.
Oh, come on! I don't mind occasionally having peanut butter and jelly, but the ham sandwiches, such as they are, are more filling, and they are an excuse for mayonnaise. (One does not simply put mayonnaise onto peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It simply isn't done.)
Please rectify this, Sodexo. If not, I will just boycott you.
In Pace Christi,
