Join Penn State Dining in Celebration of National Hispanic Month

Penn State Residential Dining is celebrating National Hispanic Month this October with specialty dishes for lunch and dinner at all of our campus dining commons.

Students can enjoy a Pozole Bar the week of October 2. Pozole is a traditional Mexican soup which includes meat, peppers and other seasonings. The following week there will be a Nacho Bar on October 9 where students can add endless toppings to their homemade tortilla chips. Additionally, units will be offering another upscale menu item with Seafood Veracruz. For a $6 upcharge, students will be able to enjoy an authentic dish with delish ingredients like lobster and red snapper.

The celebration doesn’t end there! The week of October 16 will have some great choices including a Chicken and Seafood Paella as well as a Brazilian Shrimp Stew with Cilantro Lime Rice. Start your week off right on October 23 with Beef Barbacoa Chilaquiles.

If your mouth isn’t watering yet, it will be when you read about the special items planned for Halloween. For lunch, we will be serving Pumpkin Stew, Chicken Tamale Casserole, and Decorated Cut Out Cookies.

Are you busy during lunch time? No problem, join us for dinner! There will be Pumpkin Stew, Pan De Muerto, Chicken Mole with Avacado Salsa, Cilantro Lime Rice, Pinto Beans with Jalapeno, and a Dirt Pudding Shooter.

Campus Dining is committed to enriching students’ residential experience. With five dining halls on campus, and over 35 options of places to eat, Campus Dining works towards serving quality food and beverages at all times, with quick, friendly and responsive service.
