University to take over Holy Cross food service
Observer Staff Report | Thursday, July 6, 2017
Notre Dame’s Campus Dining service will manage the Holy Cross food service starting July 30, including the dining hall and a campus cafe, according to a South Bend Tribune report.
According to the report, the college announced Wednesday that the commercial food-service operation Sodexo — Holy Cross’s current food service provider that has been managing food service at the college since 1997, will end its agreement with Holy Cross when Notre Dame takes over food service on the campus.
The college’s senior vice president, Mike Griffin, said the 15 Sodexo food service employees currently working at Holy Cross have the opportunity to apply to be University employees through Notre Dame’s Campus Dining operation and work in similar jobs, according to the Tribune.
“We wanted to be certain that the staff would have the opportunity to continue working on our campus,” he said in the report.
Under Notre Dame’s management, the menus and options in both the campus dining hall and Jazzman’s Cafe — a small cafe in the Vincent Classroom Building which will be renamed and redesigned — will be updated.
