ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the application of trayless dining systems in colleges and universities in the U.S. A survey conducted by food service management company Aramark found that students, faculty and staff would support the removal of trays. However, some food service operators dismissed the idea of trayless dining after discovering its flaws and limitations. The experiences of some colleges that have tried trayless dining are described.
