Food hunt on campus

What college student doesn’t like free food? All week, Bon Appétit is hosting stations of free food somewhere on campus. The only thing students are required to do in order to receive the free goodies is “like” at least one of Bon Appétit’s social media pages.

On Monday, Aug. 25, Bon Appétit hosted its first surprise treat event. To announce the event, the Bon Appétit at Pacific Facebook page posted, “FREE cookies and milk until 1 at the UC (De Rosa Building) see you there!”

Students responded positively to this week’s first pop-up event. “Chewy, gooey, crisp, delish,” said Al Spina ‘16.

When asked whether they were likely to attend future Bon Appétit events, students responded positively. “It was cool; I got a free cookie. Free food, might as well go,” expressed Rachel Giraldez ’17.

“It’s a good way to get free things for simple effort. Since I follow them on social media, I think I will [attend future events] now,” predicted Clay Smith ’16.

Regional Marketing Manager Stacy Stafford-Scott explains that the purpose of this food scavenger hunt is to encourage people to check social media for Bon Appétit’s events and promotions. “We found social media was the best way for new and returning students to get information. What we have to offer is much more than just breakfast, lunch and dinner. We have dessert nights, sushi nights, the E.A.T. truck and more,” remarked Stafford-Scott.

Students following Bon Appétit’s social media sites will be the first to learn where this week’s free food stations are on campus, as well as the whereabouts of new events throughout the year.

​The pop-up events will continue until the end of the week. “Like” Bon Appétit’s social media pages,, or, and be on the lookout for future events. Plenty more are to come.
