Taste Your Way Through Holy Cross Dining

New offerings include sushi, mobile menus, credit cards and more

September 9th, 2013 by Lynn Cody


Sushi is now available in the Kimball Food Court.

Holy Cross Dining will host “Taste of Holy Cross,” a food festival featuring a sampling of menu items from across campus, on Thursday, Sept. 12 from 4:30-8 p.m. From the Science Café’s famous soups to the ever-popular Crossroads flatbread pizzas to a giant ice cream sand castle—there’s a little something for everyone.

“The event was really created with first-year students in mind,” says Linda Nardella, director of Holy Cross Dining.  “It’s a great opportunity to find out about the most popular items at each of our locations, meet our staff, and learn a little bit about our allergy program and sustainability efforts.”

Kimball Hall will be serving a “favorites” menu featuring its popular Chicken Parmesan and will also be sampling two of their new vegan and gluten free items.  Inside the main dining room, take a walk around all the tables to sample your way through Holy Cross Dining. Locations will be serving up everything from smoothies to burritos and Hershey’s will also be joining in the fun building a giant sandcastle made of ice cream.

Admission for this event is $11.  Students on a meal plan can attend the event with a swipe. Dining Dollars, Crusader Express, cash and credit cards are also accepted.

What else is new?

Credit Cards
That’s right! All Holy Cross Dining locations now accept credit cards. Whether you’re looking to grab a slice from Crossroads or enjoy a latte from Cool Beans there’s no need to make that extra trip to the ATM.

Sushi in Kimball Food Court
Made fresh every day, sushi is now available in the Kimball Food Court.  Stop by to see our sushi chefs in action as they prepare everything from California rolls to tempura shrimp! Wrapped and ready for you to carry out, Kimball sushi is also delivered daily to Crossroads.

Vegan & Gluten Free Options
Paul Bartkus, the new Kimball kitchen manager, who joined the Holy Cross Dining team earlier this year, has teamed up with Kathy Egan, assistant director of wellness/promotions and dietician, to create a variety of new vegan entrees that are available at lunch and dinner in Kimball every day. Gluten-free options are available at all Holy Cross Dining locations.

Fall Farmers Markets
The popular Farmer’s Markets of the summer will be back on campus in the fall. Holy Cross Dining has collaborated with HEAL, Eco-Action and SHAPE to bring a variety of local vendors to campus for four more Fridays. They will be held on the Kimball Quad on the following dates:

Friday, Sept. 20 (3-6 p.m.)
Friday, Sept. 27 (3-6 p.m.)
Wednesday, Oct. 9 (12-3 p.m.)
Wednesday, Oct. 23 (12-3 p.m.)

Ice Cream in Kimball Dining Hall
Students looking for a mid-day pick-me-up can now stop in to Kimball for a cold and tasty treat! Scoop-your-own ice cream is now available starting at 2 p.m. every day.

Mobile Menus
You asked for it, we delivered. Dining menus are now available in a mobile-friendly format so no matter where you are, you can quickly and easily get the answer to that age-old question: what’s for dinner
