Penn State Housing & Food Services To Receive Bronze Award At National Conference

Penn State Housing and Food Services is set to receive a bronze award at the 2023 National Association of College and University Food Services (NACUFS) National Conference from July 19 to 22 in Baltimore, Maryland.

The NACUFS Conference features dining awards that recognize menus, themed meals, and dining events within collegiate dining halls. Not only does the conference reward and nationally recognize the best of collegiate dining but it also acts as a way for universities to share ideas, compare experiences, and learn new dining concepts. 

Penn State was recognized in the Residential Dining Catering-Special Event category, which honors submissions that showcase originality and “notable touches.” The university’s submission was for the Chef Series, which includes the large-scale, catered multi-course dining hall events held last fall for students. 

“We are very honored to receive this award,” Penn State Senior Assistant Director of Residential Dining Jamie Robinson said in a release. “Earning this type of national recognition reflects the hard work and dedication of our staff to provide an excellent dining experience to students, faculty and staff.”
