UVM BARF tryin' to make waves

Posted By on Tue, Nov 15, 2005 at 3:06 PM

Anybody been reading UVM BARF? Go check it out. They've gotten some pretty wild comments on their previous posts, and have now begun to take action. NCarter blogs today about his quest to find the person ultimately in charge of UVM food services.

Yesterday, he? she? wrote a witty post entitled "Sodhexo talks the talk but does it walk the walk?":

Here is a direct quote from the Sodexo website concerning unversity food: "Wemaximize the nutritional value of every offering, but our ultimate goalis to create food services that evoke a passionate response. To caterto individual tastes, we listen to students. Constantly. Our innovativeprograms meet their every craving, while delivering culinaryexcellence, attentive customer service, and engaging style. "

Now I am a student,
and I have a meal plan and have tried letting Sodexo know about my cravings by E-mailing them at CampusServices@SodexhoUSA.com. So far I've gotten no response and the only passionate response I've had towards Sodexho's services at UVM has been passionate disgust.

Them's fightin' words. Anybody listening?

    Social Sentinel, a Burlington-based company that identifies threatening content on social media, was among the winners of the 2018 Tech Jam awards, presented last Friday at the 12th Vermont Tech Jam. The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
