Dordt College contracts with new food service provider, Creative Dining Services

April 5, 2013

Dordt College will be welcoming Creative Dining Services as its food service provider starting in Summer 2013. The Zeeland, Michigan, based company serves more than 25 different colleges and was vetted through a multi-company proposal process over the past academic year.

Creative Dining was selected based on the criteria of customer service, innovation, food quality, value, and mission fit.  Creative Dining brings management depth, broad experience, a strong reputation, and established programs in the following areas:

· Leadership development and training programs in hospitality operations and culinary arts

· Sustainability and recycling

· Communication of nutrition information

· Comprehensive student evaluation and feedback system

In addition, Creative Dining employs a staff nutritionist to address student dietary needs and is well aligned with the mission of Dordt College as a distinctively Christian institution. The company’s core values are “integrity, creativity, flexibility, sensitivity, family, and sustainability.”

Dordt College is grateful to Carrie Foods and all of its employees for their 30-year partnership with the college.
