No more midnight breakfasts in Hutch, for now

Though many stopped by Hutch Commons for late-night, made-to-order dinner and breakfast last week, it wasn’t enough to prove the program could sustain itself over a long period of time.

“We averaged about 150 transitions per night for the four-day pilot program. We needed 200 to break even. The Campus Dining Advisory Board (CDAB) is going to crunch the numbers and see how we can make Late-Night Dining more economically feasible,” first-year College Council representative Patrick Ip said in an e-mail.

Breakfast skillets, biscuits, and French toast sticks were offered from 9 p.m. to midnight.

“Overall though, everyone enjoyed the experience, and so we will be looking to make it possible,” Ip said.
