Hodgdon Renovation

We’re pleased to announce that Hodgdon Food-on-the-Run will undergo renovations this year
to reduce congestion, improve cuing, and make the work spaces better for staff.

The work is expected to take about 20 weeks to complete. Hodgdon’s last day of service will be
Thursday, March 9 and remain off-line through the remainder of the semester.

A mini-Hodgdon will pop-up in the lobby of Dewick-MacPhie starting Monday, March 27 after
Spring Break. The Pop-up will offer a limited menu of popular items at breakfast, lunch and
dinner during the regular Hodgdon Hours. Access to the Pop-up will be by walk-in orders.
We know students love Hodgdon, we love it too! We are working hard to address the
disruption this may cause. Please see below for answers to many Hodgdon-related questions:
