Scenes from around the DUC..

During the summer, restaurant-style food will be served at the Danforth University Center.  Guests may enjoy American, Mediterranean, Asian, and Latin inspired cuisine.  Summer guests may purchase food with credit card or with a university meal card at the Danforth University Center.  Meal cards may be ordered by group Program Directors prior to the conference.

In addition to daily food service, Bon Appetit offers an outstanding catering menu.  If your program chooses to have a special event, reception, or simply wants coffee service, the catering team at Bon Appetit will ensure your needs are met.  Buffets, served entrees, boxed lunches, snacks, beverages, and bar service are all available through Bon Appetit catering.
