UT Knoxville and ARAMARK, the university’s food service provider, are taking steps to reduce the amount of waste that is produced during the Destination ImagiNation Global Finals event on campus this week. ARAMARK plans to serve about 111,000 meals to over 5,400 guests on campus attending the event.
This week the university’s dining service announced a name change, extended hours of operation and new campus locations.
This week UT Dining opened a new eatery on campus, and has announced a new promotion to encourage foot traffic. Petro’s Chili and Chips is now open in the Rocky Top Café, located on the first floor of the UC. Indulge all your chili desires at this newest location of a local tradition. ARAMARK, which operates campus dining, has also launched a new promotion and is giving away a 30 GB iPod Classic, t-shirts and food.
Starting Oct. 1, faculty and staff at UT Knoxville can enjoy campus dining for a little less cash. ARAMARK, which operates campus dining, is launching a UT Reward card program that gives faculty and staff a 15 percent discount on regularly priced food and drink in ARAMARK-run dining establishments except the Varsity Inn in Gibbs Hall.
