“This honor is shared by every member of our staff who work each day to serve healthy, sustainable and delicious meals to our students,” said Ken Toong, executive director of Auxiliary Enterprises at UMass Amherst. “This ranking is also a tribute to our students, whose high expectations drive our team to excel.”
