Denison University sets dining hall policy to eliminate food theft

The new policy states that students may not remove food from the cafeteria or bring in their own containers, such as Ziploc bags or Tupperware containers.

GRANVILLE, Ohio—Have you ever taken something from the dining hall? A cookie? A bagel? Well, that’s actually a violation of Denison’s policy.

The policy set by Denison and enforced by Bon Appetit is that “nothing can leave the dining hall,” said Jennifer McGann, general manager for dining services.

If every student took food, Bon Appetit would lose a significant amount of money. McGann doesn’t think food theft is an “epidemic,” but she did warn that if things get out of control, meal plan prices could increase.

Students are not allowed to bring in their own containers such as ziploc bags or tupperware containers.
