More than a million meals served in UH dining halls this past academic year
University 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 Services.

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.
