Cafeteria announces new discounts, value menu by Leslie Hill
New value menu options are available at Vanderbilt University Medical Center eateries.
The lower-priced items and discounts are available at both the Courtyard Café in The Vanderbilt Clinic and Vandy Café in the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.
First, the cafeterias have introduced an Everyday Value menu of items that cost $1. Breakfast examples include a sausage biscuit, egg and cheese biscuit, hot cereal, yogurt parfait and small coffee. Lunch and dinner options include a cheeseburger, small fries, side salad, sweet shots (small desserts) and small fountain beverages.
Second, a 10 percent price reduction has been made on the salad bar, lowering the price to $0.32 per ounce.
Third, VUMC employees will receive a 10 percent discount on purchases (excluding bottled beverages and Baja Fresh and Mein Bowl menu items). Employees are required to show their ID badge to receive the discount.
These efforts supplement discount programs already in place in the cafeterias, most notably the $4.99 Daily Value meals offered at the Charleston Market, Deli, Pizza and Grill stations.
The price reductions are part of a two-front effort under way by the Department of Nutrition Services to offer more menu options at lower prices and provide a broader selection of healthy menu options.
“This continues our effort to bring healthy and affordable food to the patients, visitors and staff at Vanderbilt,” said Walt McClure, administrative director of Nutrition Services. “We hope anyone who comes to the cafeteria can find something to enjoy that also fits their budget.”
