Dorm Room Meals

As many students head back to campuses this fall, their lives will likely feel unfamiliar. Similarly, many organizations and proprietors will be opening cafeterias and quick-serve restaurants—with social distancing in mind—but dining services will still look very different. Students will need additional options to prepare meals in their rooms or have options to grab and go.

Keeping students healthy will be of the utmost importance, so offering a variety of healthy options they can take with them, or easily prepare in their rooms or apartments, will be critical for food-service operations to maintain revenue streams.

Seafood is a nutrient-rich protein source. Tuna and salmon are excellent sources of vitamin D, B vitamins and the antioxidant selenium. All are nutrients that are important for maintaining health and supporting the immune system.
