The article reports on the challenges faced by Joseph Benedict, executive director, auxiliary services for Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, New York, in providing food service to the students. Benedict said that they have three or four machines that dispense cold sandwiches egg salad, tuna fish, and ham & cheese, for about $1.50 each. There are no entrées because they do not have microwave ovens, due to the risk to people with pacemakers and other problems.
