Dining Services aims to eventually create a North Campus Market with a late-night grill and cafe.
The refillery's pilot program, which the founders will use to determine what products students are looking for from the refillery, will begin in April.
Construction for the new coffee bar and grill started in fall 2021.
For only the first two weeks of the semester, carryout supplies cost approximately $92,000.
The fee increases would help with wage increases, department maintenance costs and other funds.
Giving workers better benefits should also be prioritized because supporting employees is just an extension of stopping the spread of COVID.
Even if they go through multiple contracts, these employees aren't always guaranteed full-time employment.
The restrictions placed on dining halls have changed as the COVID-19 pandemic has progressed.
DOTS and Dining Services are already looking ahead to fall 2022, and are trying to address the possibility of continued staff shortages.
