Student feedback spurs "Meals-to-Go" system update at Harvard

The online ordering system now accepts weekly orders for bagged meals instead of having students complete the order form each time.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—For the first time, Harvard University Dining Services began allowing students to place weekly orders for bagged meals instead of having them complete the request form each time. Previously, the HUDS “Meal-to-Go” online system accepted only one-time orders.

“We added this option based on student feedback, and hope it helps students who regularly find themselves off-campus during regular meal periods for work or internships or classes across the river,” HUDS Director for Marketing and Communications Crista Martin said in an emailed statement.

Students said that the new website function would ensure that they would not forget to order a bagged lunch when they could not make it to a dining hall.
