Liberty University today officially announced changes to its on-campus food service, which will add new food venues and relocate some existing food venues.
Starting at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Founder’s Food Court will no longer provide food services in its current location in Green Hall. Founder’s will be relocated to the Tilley Student Center by Friday, Sept. 2.
Founder’s, after being relocated, will feature a food bar buffet with hot and cold items, a Starbucks Café and a Sub Connection. The food bars will include an entrée, side items, desserts and salad options.
The Tilley Student Center will be open to faculty and staff during the day. Students will be able to use their meal points and Flames Cash, and there will be a meal swipe option as well.
A new Food Court will open on the concourse in the Vines Center on Sept. 6. Options will be comparable to those currently offered in Founder’s Food Court. Tables and chairs will be set up around the concourse.
Future plans also call for evening food service to be reinstated at the Campus East Clubhouse, and for improvements to the Keyhole convenience store on the Circle at Dorm 14.
Additional evening food service options will be announced in the near future, including on-campus pizza delivery service and a “to-go” café at Reber-Thomas Dining Hall with an outdoor patio area.
Chancellor and President Jerry Falwell Jr. said the new plan is designed to enhance dining opportunities for the greatly increased student population on main campus while continuing to offer quality food service for students, faculty, and staff at Green Hall.
The plan is also designed to ease congestion at Reber-Thomas Dining Hall and the retail outlets located in and around DeMoss Hall.
These changes are being made in accordance with Liberty’s master plan to shift most of its academic functions to main campus.
