|State inspection garners UND top marks in food service|
The University's food service facilities again scored top marks, among the very best of the 155 commercial kitchens inspected in Grand Forks, for food safety, cleanliness, and quality control, according to the most recent Grand Forks Health Department inspection.
City inspectors note that smaller facilities tend to have an easier time earning higher marks; for larger kitchens, such as those operated by UND, the high-score challenge is much greater because their operations are much more complex.
"It's a challenge, for sure," says Orlynn Rosaasen, director of UND food services. "We serve about 7,000 meals per day, day in, day out, close to the one million mark every year."
According to Rosaasen, who majored in restaurant management, the UND facilities rated as of Nov. 13 and their scores (100 is the perfect score) are as follows: airport, 98; medical sciences, 100; Old Main Market (Memorial Union food court), 99; Squires. 97; Stomping Grounds (Memorial Union coffee bar), 94; Terrace dining hall, 96; Twamley cafe, 100.
