LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 23, 2019) — As University of Kentucky students get familiar with campus during these first weeks of the fall semester, UK Dining anticipates high usage of Champions Kitchen from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each weekday. To help alleviate the expected high volume in that peak time period, UK Dining is offering a special lunch option for UK faculty and staff members over the next two weeks.

A catered buffet meal will be available to UK employees in a Gatton Student Center ballroom each weekday (not including Labor Day). The buffet will include salad, proteins, sides, desserts and beverages.

For employee dining meal plan holders, the meal will require the customary swipe. For employees not on a dining plan, the cost is the same as Champions Kitchen, $10, and only Flex and debit/credit cards can be used.

Please see the schedule and locations below:

  • 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Monday, Aug. 26 through Friday, Aug. 30, Gatton Student Center Ballroom B
  • 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3 through Friday, Sept. 6, Gatton Student Center Ballroom C

Meal swipes can also be used at the Fresh Food Company at The 90.
