UW Housing & Food Services is providing some convenient dining options to the campus community this summer, with the return of the “all you care to eat” dining option for faculty and staff at The 8 in McMahon eateries and the new option of breakfast-on-the-go at the Motosurf food truck in Red Square.

Moto-Breakfast options include traditional breakfast offerings such as eggs, bacon, croissants and oatmeal — with special Motosurf Pacific Islander twists such as rice and Spam — all for under six bucks. Check out the menu online.

The “all you care to eat” deal at The 8 in McMahon is available now and will continue until September. Show your faculty/staff ID at the counter and get your lunch for $6.50. The deal is for dine-in only — no to-go orders — and you can pay with cash, Visa, MasterCard or your Husky Card (saves you the tax!). Lunch hours are 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Of course, there are plenty of other eating options on campus during the summer, and its never been easier to find where to go for those options.

The new summertime openings schedule is available online. If youre on the move, you can use the Universitys mobile iPhone app (m.UW) to locate campus eateries on your phone, just touch the maps icon in m.UW and you can see which on-campus eating locations are open and their menus.

For the social-network inclined, make sure you “like” the UW Housing & Food Services Facebook page, so you dont miss the Facebook-only food specials that are posted regularly.
