Special Eating Concerns

Students with class conflicts

Bag lunches are available for those who are unable to eat in Commons due to a class conflict.  A student wishing to order a bag lunch must contact Darlene Zupancic (207-753-6989 or dzupanci@bates.edu) in Dining Services’ Staff Offices and fill out a form at least one day prior to the lunch needed.  Please bring your class schedule with you.  All bag lunches will be picked up in the morning.

Students leaving on approved academic, athletic, or organization trips

Catering arranges food orders for academic field trips, athletic events, and student organization trips at no charge for all participants on the board plan.  These orders should be placed for the entire group by the person in charge of the trip (eg. A professor or designee, a coach or responsible person of a student organization) giving at least a 5 business day notification prior to the event.  The organization, team or department will be charged only for those who are not on the board plan.  Please contact Donald Desrosiers to place an order (207-786-6298 or ddesrosi@bates.edu).
