C&U On Demand: Pam Lampitt on Penn Dining’s fall initiatives

A more flexible meal swipe program, new concepts and expanded use of automation are some changes University of Pennsylvania students will see from campus dining this fall.


FM On Demand and C&U On Demand are video interviews with onsite dining professionals who talk about creative and interesting initiatives they have developed or undertaken.

As students return to full-time in-person classes and a new meal plan requirement for sophomores kicks in, the University of Pennsylvania (Penn) has taken steps to increase the value and appeal of its campus dining program. Among them are changes and upgrades to the meal swipe system that will give users more choice and flexibility, a number of new dining concepts and locations to expand the range of food/beverage options and the deployment of more automation in the form of ordering kiosks in a couple of dining halls and more functionality for the PennEats app.

In this FM On Demand interview, Penn Director of Business Services Pam Lampitt talks about these and other recent dining-related initiatives at the school and her goal to make the Penn dining program one of the best in the industry.
