MU’s College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources offers several options in Eckles Hall for hungry people who want to stay on campus.
Buck’s Ice Cream Place
Buck’s Ice Cream Place, known for its Tiger Stripe ice cream, is always trying out new flavors. The shop, tucked beneath a black-and-gold striped awning, is near College Avenue and Hatch residence halls and is about a five minute walk from the Student Recreation Complex at the heart of campus. The shop, and everything behind the scenes, serves as teaching laboratory for students in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.
Hours: noon — 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, Saturdays during warmer months
Culinary Café offers a dinner series, which usually includes a four-course meal, staffed by upper-level student management teams in the Hotel and Restaurant Management program. The food, music and décor are all coordinated to a different theme. Examples from last spring include "International Chocolate Dinner," "Under the Tuscan Sun" and "Down Under."
Mizzou Meat Market
Mizzou Meat Market is a training laboratory for MU’s Food Science and Animal Science programs. The store offers USDA approved cuts of beef, lamb and pork in a wide variety of cuts. For MU students with a passion for cooking meat, the market offers student charge orders.
Hours: noon — 5:30 p.m., Wednesdays and Fridays; special pick-up appointments available.
