Harvest Table Culinary Group at Elon University has been raising the bar there with next-level flavors and impressive catering setups. But like other campuses across the country, COVID-19 closures have meant an interruption to the communal aspect of dining.
Jay Vetter, executive chef, and the team there are keeping a positive perspective for students still on campus, and those who may be able to come in the fall. Though picking up food is contactless, the marketing team has made sure dining is in contact with students virtually, through cooking classes and a gorgeous Instagram account.

Creating meals that nourish and comfort is what this team was built to do, Vetter says, and they’re taking advantage of any downtime to conceptualize and develop solutions for no matter what the future may hold. They are also making some pretty great milkshakes, which make everything better, no question.
