TITLE: “Ultimate Dining Hall Hack – Delicious, Nutritious & Ingenious
Making Gourmet Meals out of Boring Cafeteria Food”
SPECIAL GUEST: Priya Krishna
College is often a time when students find their passions in life. Some people discover that they have a head for business, others for foreign languages. Unfortunately, an alarming new study shows that an unexpectedly large number of college students, an estimated 60%, are unable to find or afford nutritious food.
According to Priya Krishna, this does not have to be the case. She explains that while campus food largely has a reputation for being less than stellar, it food often gets a bad rap.
While the rest of her classmates were planning their medical or legal careers, joining the right clubs or playing college sports, Priya Krishna was hanging out in the dining hall, figuring out how to make gourmet treats out of tired old staples. What she was doing was hacking the dining hall food. Priya became so adept at personalizing her affordably and nutritious campus meal plans, she wrote a weekly column on the subject for her school newspaper.
