Food Exclusivity Policy
Sodexo Catering Service provides quality service for UCM dining events. No outside food or beverages in mass amounts are to be brought on campus. New campus dining options are available to campus constituents, such as the elimination of food waivers and the introduction of a new “Shoe-String Catering Menu.” This menu allows food to be ordered through the residence halls or in the Elliott Union catering office.
These items can be picked up, resulting in significant savings. Waivers are no longer part of the process, but if you would like to request an exception to the policy please contact Patrick Bradley, Senior Director of University Housing and Residential Dining Services. You can contact the University Housing and Residential Dining Service by calling 660-543-4515.
You may place your order by contacting the Sodexo Catering Office at 660-543-4440, stopping by Elliott Union 108, visiting the dining manager in Ellis Hall who can be reached at 660-543-4018, or Westside Market located in Todd Hall that can be reached at 660-543-4097. A minimum of three days notice is required for your event. Bake sales are only allowed in buildings that do not have a food service venue.
The following conditions apply to all routine events involving the serving of alcoholic beverages on the UCM campus. Non-routine events, or events other than a reception, dinner or similar event, require advanced approval by the University Alcohol Procedures Review Committee and require four weeks notice. It is the responsibility of the client to obtain approval for all non-routine events. Alcohol service is dependent on adherence to all applicable local, state and federal laws governing the possession and consumption of alcohol.
Please take note of the following:
