A Message to our Guests
Due to the cumulative impact of the coronavirus, most companies are confronting labor shortages and many are also battling a scarcity of raw materials. This can mean that deliveries are delayed and/or certain foods and products such as your café’s standard to-go containers and disposable cutlery are temporarily unavailable. Bon Appétit’s on-site and corporate purchasing teams are working hard to source appropriate alternative products and secure adequate supplies in advance but you should expect last-minute menu changes or shifts in how meals are packaged. If you have concerns about the availability of a particular product please contact David Friendlich.
We appreciate your patience!

Eat Right — For You
When it comes to wellness, Bon Appétit’s focus is on simple, delicious food — that happens to be good for you. To support long-term health, we are bringing more plants to menus every day in a craveable way, while emphasizing healthy cooking techniques. When healthy food tastes good, nourishing your body and mind becomes the easy choice.
We serve thousands of guests with food allergies and sensitivities safely in our cafés every day. Our chefs, managers, and dietitians work closely with our food-allergic guests to create reasonable solutions to help them eat what they love. If you have questions about eating for your dietary needs in our cafés, reach out to us: we’ll gladly meet with you.
Wellness also includes the health of the animals, the workers, the community, and the Earth. They’re all connected. Bon Appétit has been committed to “food service for a sustainable future” for decades, and we’ve led the food service industry in tackling many important issues, such as cage-free eggs, antibiotics in animal production, and farmworker rights.
Meal Plans allow students to access the all-you-care-to-eat campus dining halls, the new Mary Fisher Residential Dining Center, including Nosh, our Kosher Station. All plans include dining dollars which allow you to purchase a la carte items at Alice’s Restaurant, or the new Student Market at Mary Fisher. The Pick 3 program in the Student Market allows meal plan holders to build a meal on the go in exchange for a meal swipe.

Get Well Meals
The Goucher Dining Team and Goucher Res Life are happy to provide drop off meals to students who are unable to visit dining locations due to quarantine or mandated isolation. The Dining Team will carefully prepare your meal and a representative from Res Life will deliver your meal near the beginning of service. Isolation meals must be ordered by noon the day prior to drop-off. Each meal will be deducted from the student’s meal plan as if the student were eating a meal in one of our cafes.
