UEI Announces Launch of Epicure Extras for Food Insecure Students

SACRAMENTO, Calif., February 13, 2018 – University Enterprises, Inc. (UEI) and Epicure Catering, in collaboration with Sacramento State Information Resources & Technology, Student Affairs, the Union/Well, and Associated Students, Inc., are pleased to announce the launch of Epicure Extras.

Epicure Extras is a new, free service offered to Sacramento State students alerting them when extra food is available after certain on-campus catered events. Students may access Epicure Extras by downloading the Sac State mobile app and turning on push notifications to receive an alert informing them that food is available and its location.

“Epicure Extras helps students with food insecurities access a snack or meal, and it minimizes food waste within our dining operation.” says Jim Reinhart, executive director for UEI.

To participate, students show their OneCard at the event location and have 20 -30 minutes to eat. Food is available during the specified timeframe until it’s gone and must be consumed at the catered location.

Epicure Extras is limited to catered events in the Union, The Well, Alumni Center, and Sacramento Hall.
