More than a million meals served in UH dining halls this past academic year
of Houston Dining Services hit a significant milestone on May 5
when it surpassed the 1 million mark for the number of meals
served in a single academic year in its dining halls. This is
the first time that number has been reached.
The final tally for the 2012-2013 year was 1,020,315 meals
served. It only includes meals served in the Fresh Food Company
in Moody Towers and the Cougar Woods Dining Hall.
“A milestone like this cannot happen without folks from all
areas of the university working in partnership to make it
possible. We look forward to even greater things next year,”
said Geoff Herbert, resident district manager for UH Dining
As the University of Houston continues to grow into its Tier 1
status, UH Dining Services is committed to growing along with it
in responding to the needs of the campus community. The addition
of a gluten-friendly station at the Fresh Food Company offered a
new service to students with gluten sensitivities. Over the past
year, UHDS also has added a Taco Cabana, Subway and food trucks
to meet students’ needs. The University Center is being
remodeled and will open in January 2014 with additional dining
choices like McDonalds and Panda Express.
