Egor Plotnikov started this petition to Lake Forest College

In light of the COVID19 pandemic, Lake Forest College decided to pivot to a fully remote academic model for Fall 2020. College administration also decided to shut down campus dining facilities, so around 50 students remaining on campus will be stranded with almost nothing to eat. As for cooking for themselves, College neither has a sufficient number of kitchens for students to cook in at the same time, nor are those kitchens well equipped. More importantly, many students do not know how to cook well for themselves; cooking every day is also time-consuming and takes away from the time that could be dedicated to studying. The college administration plans to provide the shuttle services to nearby grocery stores, but that alone is barely enough to make up for cancellation of dining services.

The catering company would love to continue serving food to students throughout the Fall 2020; however, the decision belongs to the Lake Forest College administration, which is why it is up to us - students - to request LFC administration to reconsider the decision they've made. We understand that with the challenges brought to us by current circumstances administration had to make some adjustments; yet, we do not believe that the decision that was made is in the best interest of Lake Forest College students.

What we are asking for:
We request for the Lake Forest College administration to reverse their decision on closing dining facilities on campus, instead having dining facilities serve food in the same - or similar - fashion throughout the remainder of the summer and the academic semester. We also ask LFC to provide us with shuttle service running to some inexpensive stores - like Walmart and Aldi.

Fulfilling these requirements will significantly alleviate the stress off of LFC students, and Parkhurst workers, providing for a more secure, stable, and mutually-supportive environment.

Please support our request of keeping the dining facilities open throughout the coming academic semester, and introducing shuttle service to inexpensive nearby stores. Help us avoid causing more stress to students, and furloughing more workers on campus, consequently adding to financial stress and further increase in the already rising unemployment. Please sign this petition!
