SUMMARY OF CURRENT DINING OPERATIONS

Sodexo Dining Services will operate resident dining, retail dining, catered events, and Q & I meals according to DOH, CDC, Sodexo and SUNY guidelines. Enhanced cleaning protocols established in 20-21 will continue. The local DOH has lifted all dining restrictions. Our detailed COVID-19 Preparedness Plan for Sodexo at SUNY Oneonta, has been updated and is posted here:  Oneonta Preparedness Plan – COVID

RESIDENT DINING

Wilsbach and Mills resident dining halls will be open. Resident Dining Halls will offer both dine in and take out options. Customers just have to let the cashier know their preference upon arrival. Takeout meals will be served in our sanitized, reusable containers. Seating capacity will allow for social distancing as needed. The college community is welcome to dine in or take out their meals from the dining halls, following the same protocols. Hours of operation will be shared with residence life staff and available on the Sodexo website.

RETAIL DINING

All four retail operations will be open – Starbucks, Argo Tea, Seasons and Mills Marketplace. Customers can order ahead with the GET app for contactless service, payment, and express pickup.


FOOD PROCUREMENT AND DISTRIBUTION CHALLENGES

Sodexo is proactively working with vendors to address the current challenges of a limited work force, food sourcing, and distribution. There may be times that certain products are not readily available, and substitutions may be required. We will post signs in the impacted operations to explain the challenges. This is a national problem, and we seek everyone’s patience.
