VESTAL (WBNG) -- Earlier this year, reports surfaced that Universities around the nation were struggling with how to feed and maintain their students in those isolation and quarantined dorms. Students would even post their lackluster meals on social media which went viral.
Binghamton University saw those horror stories and said that they did not want to have the same reputation.
And, so, they began to plan and organize for how to respond when students would be in those isolation/quarantine dorms.
The Dining Services at Binghamton University were able to create a comprehensive system where they would have students daily fill and request meals from Dining Services via an online form.
The team would then assemble and deliver the meals for the students.
Dining Services said they were also ready to accommodate any type of dietary need or restriction that someone may have and say they were prepared in case anyone was added last minute.
Now, the service has reported that they have delivered over 6,000 meals to students in isolation and say they have recieved positive feedback.
Dining Services said it was important for them to make sure those students in isolation still felt like they were a part of the campus community.
The service added that they would not have achieved the success without the teamwork of everyone involved and are proud to have accomplished their success.
