Claremont McKenna's dining halls will be banning trays next year in some bogus cost cutting move. The move was heavily influenced by the utterly dishonest -- or utterly incompetent -- campaign by the self-described Environmental Crusaders to showcase the food that CMC students supposedly waste.
A CMC parent writes in and asks,
1- what if you brought your own tray? (you can swipe them from Taco Bell)
2- What if the CLaremont Conservative sold trays as a fundraiser?
3- If CMC students boycotted Collins and ate at Mudd where they have trays, Collins would lose money and $$$$ talks?
4- Will parents get discounts on meal plans since you'll eat less?
5- The big question, will there be trays used on parent day or orientation?
George Posner CMC '12 crunked the numbers on the last issue of The Claremont Independent and it turns out that the meal plan price per meal is rather expensive. [See charts below.]
Does anyone know the answers to any of these questions?
