"Hey! Is there any way we could get large individual pickles for sale? I love a big juicy crunchy dill pickle as a snack and I'm sure other people do too. I have seen them individually packaged before but a big jar of them would work too. Thanks!"

Yes! The Marketplace now carries individually packaged dill pickles. Look for them in the Grab & Go.

"I saw that you already responded to a request or sushiritos but I just wanted to second that and say that was so good and it would make my semester to see it on the menu again! I also wanted to ask if it is possible that pho could be served? Thank you for all you do the food is wonderful!!"

Sushiritos were on the menu for lunch on Friday 2/10/17. We hope you enjoyed them! Your request for Pho is noted J

"would it be possible to get baguettes in the marketplace at the sandwich bar? thanks"

Your wish is granted! The Marketplace is pleased to announce that we will have a Baguette available at the Deli Station beginning 1/30/17. We will start out in small quantities and see how things go from there.

(Tiger Cooler) "Sour skittles should be sold up front sometimes!"

While our supplier does offer the Sour Skittles, they do not come in the 36ct boxes we typically carry. We would unfortunately have to stock the smaller boxes, but they would be at a price that seems unreasonably high to us.

(Tiger Cooler) "Please bring back the seaweed snacks!!"

The seaweed snacks are back. This is a new item, and sometimes it takes us...

"Could we please have fresh berries at the waffle station instead of the syrupy kind?"

Fresh berries fluctuate dramatically in price and availability. They also require significant staff preparation time, which would subtract from preparing other items from scratch. The frozen berries we use have a consistent price because they are harvested at peak season, and are convenient and quick for the staff members who maintain the station. 

"Can we bring back pesto to the mp?"

Yes :-) Look for the individual Pesto containers in the Grab & Go case!

"At the homestyle section today, Thursday November 17th, the sign for the food was spelled "Philipino Pork Adobo". Through my experience (being Filipino), I always spelled it as Filipino or Pilipino (traditional way). May I ask: Why did you...

"What butter/condiment is used in the wraps at the cooler? (Such as the veggie wrap with eggplant, snap peas, lettuce, carrot from today [10/22].) Is it vegan? Thank you!"

That is our Karashi Mustard Dressing, a vinaigrette made from a Japanese mustard. Yes, it is vegan.

"There were large and small pieces of white plastic in the hummus today (in the pita & hummus)... It looked like it had been blended with the hummus

Thank you for letting us know. We investigated and determined the plastic was soft pieces from a rubber scraper that got caught in the blade. We discarded the rest of the product. If you did not already get a refund, please contact us at and we will give you a credit. We apologize!

"Could you please use more kabocha pumpkin and other squash in the vegan options?"

'tis the season for squash! We received your suggestion on 10/22, and menued the Kabocha Pumpkin again at the SLO meal for lunch on 10/31. We hope you found...

"Could the quinoa lentil loaf from home style become a regular at the brunch buffet? It's my favorite Oxy meal!"


We're so glad you like this vegan selection! We serve the Quinoa Lentil Loaf about every three weeks at Homestyle. The weekend crew is a different team and has not made this item before. However, it may show up as a re-heat (gently re-heated items are regularly served at brunch ;->)

"Please start selling Hint water in the MP!!!"

We'll check our suppliers and see if they carry it. Thank you!

"Thank you for serving a veggie pasta of the day at the pasta to order station! Have been longing for it--please keep more coming!"

You're welcome. Expect a vegetarian option as Pasta of the Day at least once per week.

"Is it possible to label low-sodium as you do gf/vegan? Thanks"

We wish we had the human resources to do more...

"Would it be possible to stock other flavors of Lily's hummus? According to their website, they carry: Plain (Original) Smoked Tomato and Basil Roasted Garlic Roasted Jalapeno Kalamata Olive Roasted Red Pepper Black Bean Hummus"

We are carrying the only two Sabras Hummus varieties that our vendors carry in snack packs, which include crackers - Plain and Roasted Red Pepper. The other flavors are only available in larger containers - and we don't have much space to spare in the "Grab & Go" frig - sorry!

"THE HALAL CHICKEN KABOBS WERE AMAZING!!! The chicken was so moist and flavorful; can we please have this again?

Yes, we will make the kabobs again. Thanks for letting us know :-)

"THE VEGETABLE NAPOLEON WAS SO GOOD PLEASE MAKE IT AGAIN!!! Also I love the new raw pistachio bars please keep them. <3

Hi! I think it would be really cool if you could provide reusable and disposable chopsticks along with western cutlery. Thanks! :)

We stock compostable disposable chopsticks at the grill station in the Marketplace. If you don't see them please ask. At the Cooler we stock chopsticks for sushi.
