BREAD & BUTTER

 

Letter from the Managing Director

Farm fresh, made locally, hot off the grill, and from an old family recipe… All familiar phrases at home, but also in the Harvard University Dining Services (HUDS) kitchens. This site will introduce you to the dining experience you'll enjoy here.

Our mission? To nourish and support the students, faculty, staff, and guests of Harvard by creating experiences that foster friendship, encourage learning, and cultivate community. More specifically, we're your home away from home. Our staff will become part of your extended family because we take your well-being and satisfaction very personally.

HUDS serves you through 13 undergraduate dining halls, a kosher kitchen, 14 retail operations, Crimson Catering, and Crimson Cash. Here's what you can expect from HUDS: cuisine that will entice and educate you, and people who will welcome you with open arms.

This site answers many of the basic questions about dining at Harvard. But it's the people of HUDS that round out your experience, so we look forward to getting to know you.

Again, welcome and enjoy!

David P. Davidson
Managing Director, Dining
