CITY COLLEGE–CCNY students let out a collective sign of relief after the college announced last week that the school will be parting ways with its current food service contractor, Centerplate. But even as students, faculty, and staff wait for better food services on campus, the change will leave many hungry. Starting March 22, the main student cafeteria, the faculty lounge, the Rotunda Café, and Marshak Café will all be closed for the remainder of the spring semester.
Centerplate has been supplying food to City College since the fall of 2017, but its service has long been the subject of critique. Students complain that on-campus food is sub-par, and in no way justifies its expensive price tag.
