Students receive foodservice experience through 800 Café


NDSU provides students with firsthand experience on how to run a foodservice establishment with the nutrition science/dietetic student managed 800 Café. 

This is an on-campus restaurant managed by nutrition science/dietetic students as part of the nutrition science/dietetics program. Meals offered are 800 calories or less as the name suggests. These meals are focused on whole foods and making as many recipes as possible from scratch.

Please join student managers, Emily Herdering from Melrose, Minnesota, Meghan Savage from Hibbing, Minnesota and Aunika Bosch from Bismarck, North Dakota for their restaurant serving on Thursday, February 22, Whole Foods for Heart Health Month in room 312 of the Katherine K. Burgum Family Life Center.

The menu features a charcuterie board with fresh raspberries, grapes, oranges, cucumbers, turkey, cheddar cheese and crackers. A teriyaki chicken rice bowl served with cucumbers, pineapple, carrots, edamame and red onions and a side of spicy mayo is the entree. Dessert will be lemonade sorbet, made with fresh squeezed lemons, with raspberries.

The first seating is at 11 a.m. and the last seating starts at 12:15 p.m., but customers are welcome to enjoy a leisurely meal up until 1:30 p.m. Each meal costs $10 per person, or four meals for $35 with a purchased punch card and payments can be made in the form of cash or check at the door.

The class is instructed by Sherri Nordstrom Stastny, professor of health, nutrition and exercise sciences. Seating is limited, so reservations are preferred. Additional restaurant dates, names of student managers, weekly changing menu and reservation information regarding the 800 Café may be found on the 800 Café website

Please note number in your party, time of seating and if any food allergies need to be noted. Parking is available in the visitor’s pay lot on the south side of the Memorial Union on campus.
