Adam Curry started this petition to Northwest Nazarene University

As a senior at NNU, I have personally filled out the Sodexo Quality Survey, explaining the very things I started this petition for, and nothing has changed. Instead our meal plan prices have stayed high and our quality of food has stayed low. I know students such as myself, and many others, have all filled out these surveys and indicated that the quality of Sodexo is sub-par, with food being limited in selection, yet instead of addressing the problems listed in these surveys, Sodexo instead seems to ignore them, with food quality appearing to grow worse and worse in the nearly four years I have spent here. Now, we aren't asking for five-star quality food, but when a meal from McDonald's is not only cheaper, but of a better quality than the food we are served at our only source of food on campus there is an issue.

Not only is this a problem, Sodexo also lowers the quality of their food during their special "event meal" nights. During these event meals, an option such as wings or specialty burgers is offered, for usually around six dollars, on top of an ordinary scan. While ordinarily this wouldn't be an issue, the Dex (as students call it) then focuses all their attention on that particular station, making the quality of food at the other non-specialty stations sub-par. 

This all wouldn't be an issue if the cost matched the quality of the food, but when the cheapest meal plan is $875 a semester, or $1750 a year, the food is by far not worth the price. On average a meal at the Dex is close to $10 a scan, which would be worth it if the options were plentiful and good, but they aren't.

So, in conclusion there are two matters that need to be addressed, the main one in regards to the quality of food as it relates to total cost. The  other being the gimmicky "event meals" that result in lower normal food quality.

There are a few things we as students would like to change.

1. Make the quality of food worth the price of a meal plan, or lower the costs of a meal plan significantly.

2. Either stop the "event meals" or charge less for them

3. Make sure food quality is consistent, not dropping during these event meals if they continue.

The Dex is the only option for meals for most students, and the quality of food is quite often lacking, so we urge the leadership of NNU to consider these options in order to help improve the quality of life for students on campus.
