How do employees eat?

Is there a meal plan? Or do we just pay for each meal? Is there food in the ARC? Where is the best place to get food?

There’s always the Employee Cafeteria which is part of the Main Kitchen complex. I think the cafeteria has a new name now.

I used to fill in for the short order breakfast cook when the old timer who did that 7 days a week was too hung over or still drunk to work. The Old Mess Sergeant, Kitchen Manager John Cochran, would send somebody over to the Cedars to roust me out of bed! Cochran was a great guy I miss to this day. I still have a grey china German beer stein he gave me. He brought a bunch back from WWII.

The cafeteria has breakfast (one of the very best food values ever...) and a main entree through the day.

You can buy park food, but even with the discount it is not a fabulous deal.

I lived in Bayside when I was a seasonal and I would eat breakfast in the caf and pack a lunch.

I'd cook food back at the room for the dinner.

There is "food" in the ARC. But nothing good and good for you.

Extremely unscientific, but in my studies most people eat with a fork and knife, or some cases their hands or a spoon. They put the food in their mouth and chew it until they can swallow the food easily. Hope this helps!

I usually use my mouth, hands and various utensils, usually a knife, fork and/ or spoon, depending on what is being eaten. I imagine C.P. employees probably do something similar.

If it's something like mushrooms, I guess you could throw it in the garbage.

Some of us LIKE mushrooms. :P But then, we're strange creatures who also like pineapple on pizza.

Pineapple on pizza people probably put ketchup on hotdogs as well.

Gonna say it loud and proud: Stadium mustard is garbage. I prefer yellow mustard.

When I worked there from 2000 to 2002 they just poured the slop in the trough and let us chow down.

1 major takeaway from this thread is that some of you have very bad taste buds. This reminds me to never ask for or trust food advice on here.
