The dining hall comes of age

After a 14-month re-evaluation of Furman food services led by Becky Vuksta, a decision was made to partner with Bon Appétit Management Company. Vuksta, Director of Auxiliary Services for Furman, looked to the firm because of its commitment to using locally and regionally sourced foods, its waste reduction policies, and the firm’s willingness to listen and provide creative menu adjustments. And most important, the food tastes great as evidenced by the growing numbers of diners that file in from the Woodlands and OLLI. Rebecca McKinney covers the Furman dining hall transformation in edible UPCOUNTRY.
