Description

One of Colby Colleges dining services most criticized aspects is its lack of meat. Its a problem that has crossed most students minds. Students often talk about wanting freshly cooked meat rather than frozen burgers and the usual piece of chicken. The idea of having a steak and sausage barbecue in the warm spring sun is what Colby students would dream of. I am proposing to set up a permanent tent near Johnson pond and have barbecues Monday though Thursday, each day dedicated to a different class. This would both serve as a great opportunity for the many hungry students to get their hands on some good, healthy and fresh meat as well as for them to engage with their fellow classmates. The costs of setting up a permanent tent and those of hiring a few more employees would be the first step that would have to be taken. The only real problem to be solved is the what the tent will be used for in the winter when there its too cold to be outside. With the willingness of Colby College to cooperate with me, though, the project could be fully running before November 2014 and would be a great step forward to ensure better food for the hundreds of Colby students who desire it.

The Lack of Meat at Colby and the Barbecue Solution.
