Hornets Nest Lunch Access for Faculty + Staff Fall 2020

Communication from Carmen Leeds, Director Memorial Union

Dear Faculty and Staff:

  1. Hornet Express is not open for the public to enter into the space.  We ask that patrons use Grub Hub to place an order and then come for pick-up.  You can use your DCB and commuter plan in Grub Hub!
  2. The NEST only holds 100 people this semester for social distancing needs, so the students will be using a reservation system to have a 30 min seating time during lunch.  The students are our top priority, so faculty and staff will not be able to use the NEST during the lunch time 11:00am-2:00pm.  Due to the limited space we will not be able to accommodate all students so we will have a To Go option as well.
  3. We are excited to let you know we will have a To Go option for all three meals.  Breakfast and Dinner To Go will be out of Slice of Life.  Lunch To Go will be out of the Greek room on second floor.  These To Go options will be robust for your meal swipe!  WE also have reusable To Go containers available for $4.00 if you would like to participate in this program to reduce waste.  The containers will be at each To Go location.

Breakfast – one entrée, two sides and beverage

Lunch – one entrée (options: pizza, grill item, main line meal, Caesar or garden salad w/ or without meat, deli sandwich), two sides, dessert and beverage

Dinner – one entrée (options: Pizza, Pasta, Grill or salad), two sides, dessert and beverage

Thank you for your understanding about not having access to the NEST for lunch this Fall.  We will continue to evaluate as we get into the semester and will send updates if something changes.  We hope the To Go options and HX Grub Hub are good options for you to maintain social distance and stay safe this semester.  We will continue to have $7.00 special on Fridays as well.
