Letter: Thanks, Dining Services


The Food Rescue Team would like to recognize and thank the Pomona College Dining Hall staff and managers for all the work and effort they have poured into the shaping of the Food Rescue Project this year. The project donates the un-served and edible leftovers that would otherwise be trashed at the end of each meal to local homeless-relief organizations, and without the support of the dining hall staff and managers, we would not have been able to do any of this work.

Thanks to Dave Janosky, the general manager for Pomona dining services, for his initial and continued support of this project as well as his persistent efforts to getting the project started in the face of multiple layers of paperwork and contracts. Dave really wanted the Food Rescue Project to happen, and his care really shows in the amount of work he has devoted to establishing and promoting this project. Thanks to Ruben and Hector, the managers of Frank and Frary, for their daily smiles, for their excitement and eagerness in doing whatever they can to help this project run, and for overseeing the operation of the program at each dining hall. Without Ruben and Hector, Food Rescue simply would not run. Throughout the year, they have been wonderfully accommodating, accessible and willing to help, and in so doing, they have contributed an incalculable amount to the success of Food Rescue. Finally, a deep and heartfelt thanks to all the staff members of Frank and Frary dining halls who have taken the time after every lunch and every dinner to package and label these leftovers. The students as well as the recipients of the food know how much work this is, and we are grateful for every bit of it.

Pomona College Dining Hall staff and managers, we cannot thank you enough for your work this year in making Food Rescue a reality. Because of you, we are able to provide over 400 meals a week to shelter residents and the homeless in our community. Without you, none of this would be possible. Mil gracias.
