Where Are the Essie Mae’s Bag Dinners?

Student Council worked with Essie Mae’s to introduce bag dinners in the Fall of 2006. These included a full meal–sandwich, fruit, and drink–for the price of only one swipe, but according to Cash Operation Manager Gusti Ruhri, they went the way of the dinosaur at the beginning of November.

Director of Dining Services Linda McDougall explained that the dinners were made available on a trial basis, and “if we did not sell an average of fifteen a night they would no longer be available.”

“I am very sorry about the bag dinners,” Ruhri wrote the Gazette in an e-mail, “But we always had leftovers. We made up to 5 bag dinners every evening from Monday through Saturday and we still had some left.”

    I’m sorry to hear about that. The bag dinners, while not always appetizing, were a great alternative to buying bag lunches at tarble or stuffing food into bags at Sharples when we knew we had a busy night ahead of us.
