Goodbye, Cafeteria Tray?

When I was in college, I remember squeezing too much food—some of it less dangerous than the rest—onto a standard cafeteria tray.

Wedged among my chicken tetrazzini, makeshift salads and beef stew were Dixie cups of Cap’n Crunch, soda and ice cream sundaes.

However, the days of stuffing oneself in the dining hall may be coming to an end. Or, at the very least, college kids will have to make several trips to the food lines to match their predecessors’ caloric intake.

Click here to read an article in yesterday’s New York Times about the growing trend toward eliminating trays in college dining halls. (Along with food consumption, water usage and food waste also decrease.)
