Summary

Nolden told CBS News on Friday that the school has repeatedly failed to deliver her breakfast and lunch, so she has resorted to making a lot of her own food.Nolden also said she, and many other students, ordered dinners through DoorDash, "but that gets to be pricey on our already high tuition." Several students pointed out that ordering take-out for two weeks is not feasible for low-income students. "When NYU told us we would be provided three meals a day free of charge, we assumed we would be getting fed properly, but many of us brought snacks in case we went hungry."Shear said she has received many products that contain dairy despite having an allergy — a problem echoed by many students with dairy and gluten intolerances. "This is a never-before-tried operation for us… But it is vital to get it right." Beckman said the school is implementing a number of changes, including ensuring meals are delivered earlier in the day, adding staff to handle complaints and to deliver food, dedicating staff to specifically handle meals with dietary specializations, bringing in another food service provider, and authorizing staff to give students money for delivery. "So as of right now all changes are essentially performative and not practical," he said.Nolden said she has seen that more students are receiving food on time, but said that they are still not substantial meals, typically consisting of fruit and a snack.
