I-House Dining Featured in Foodservice Director Magazine

We would like to share with you all a wonderful article written about International House Dining Services, published in the February 2020 issue of Food Service Director Magazine. Read the two-page article, When the World Comes to Dine (PDF file) featured on pages 48 -49.

We've set a standard around campus as students, faculty, and staff from other facilities are frequently spotted in our Dining Commons. Congratulations to the entire Dining Services team!

On behalf of all of our residents, we thank you for staying connected to International House Berkeley.
