Babson Dining is planning to implement technology and automated dining solutions to support on campus dining during the COVID-19 pandemic. These new dining options will be available 24 x 7 at the Olin Café, extending the times in which our students can enjoy healthy and freshly prepared meals at the graduate school. Made to order salads can be ordered right from your smartphone with Sally the Salad Robot and an automated smart market will accommodate all your favorite grab-and-go options such as sandwiches, snacks and sushi, all prepared on site by the Babson Dining culinary team.
Dining at Trim
There will be fewer opportunities to dine in at Trim, as gathering and physical distancing guidelines significantly reduce seating. We are identifying locations around campus, indoors and outdoors, for students to eat and socialize. We also are increasing the availability of prepackaged self-service opportunities to de-densify crowds during meal times and provide more dining options that are convenient for students in between classes. Daily meal times will be adjusted to allow Facilities and Babson Dining to deep clean dining venues throughout the day.
Trim has been altered for the spring semester, removing Trim Xpress, and returning to a single dining space providing increased flexibility, variety and options to our guests.
The structure of Babson meal plans is being reworked to reflect the changes in service due to state mandates for the food-service industry.
Operations in Reynolds, Dunkin’, and Centennial Café will be transitioned to an all-mobile ordering platform allowing for physical distance in these tighter spaces. This cashier-less system will reduce interactions with dining staff and guests to prioritize health and safety. Initial menus will offer less variety but will provide the most popular options.
Babson Dining remains committed to serving food across campus for all dietary needs, including allergen-free foods, and food that meets approved medical and religious accommodations.
