The Mt. SAC Public Safety and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s departments are partnering in a campaign to heighten employee and student awareness of the need to protect their personal belongings by not leaving them exposed in their parked vehicles on campus.

On Tuesday, Sept. 18 between 9 a.m. and noon, officers from both units will blanket parked vehicles across the campus with windshield flyer inserts that offer theft prevention tips. They are also extending their theft prevention message beyond the parking lot and encouraging students and employees to protect their personal belongs while on campus—in offices, classrooms, and food/concession venues.

The company will manage the Campus Café, Mountie Grill, Common Grounds, Express Stop, Prime Stop, Short Stop, Mountie Stop, and the Café Office as well as provide catering services, College for Kids meals, and daily lunch service for the Child Development Center.

The company will provide breakfast, lunch, and dinner offerings and operate the convenience stores across campus and also provide catering services to the campus. Carl’s Jr. will continue to operate next to the Campus Café for the remaining year of its contract.

Employees and students will find some exciting and innovative changes in Sodexo’s food offerings, including a “grab-and-go” packaged food section, a made-to-order sandwich bar with freshly baked bread (similar to Subway), a World of Wings concession, and an array of healthy-choice options.

The weekly menu offerings will be posted on Sodexo’s website customized for Mt. SAC, which will be linked to Mt. SAC’s Campus Connection homepage. In addition to menus, the site will provide nutritional information, tips, and resources to enable employees and students to craft balanced diets for themselves.

In addition, the Mountie Grill will be extensively renovated while the Campus Café will be moderately renovated over the summer months to accommodate additional food stations and improve customer traffic flow. The Campus Café will remain open during construction, but the Mountie Grill will be closed until the fall semester opens on August 29. — Posted 6-21-11
