It seems like just yesterday that I blogged about the intolerance at Pomona's dining halls. Elspeth Hilton '08 threatened to ban the chain because they disagree with her politics. She never offered a vote to see whether or not Pomona's student body agrees. Bless her. She's got a long political career ahead of her, telling people to do what she wants.
Fortunately Sodexho has responded by bringing the farmer's market to Pomona's dining halls. Environmental Affairs Commissioner Kyle Edgerton ‘08, said that the dining hall changed its policies at the moment ASPC President Elspeth Hilton ’08 “put the challenge to Sodexho.” He added that though the local produce has been added there has yet to be “some hard discussions about what Sodexho represents.”So basically Pomona's President scares Sodexho into compliance with her policies. The not-so-subtle hint for Sodexho is comply with our demands or else. How unappetizing.
