LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Is university's trayless effort necessary?

Tuesday, May 21, 2013 | 5:57 p.m. CDT

I see that MU is taking pride in its "no tray for you!" policy in the dorm cafeterias. The university reports that the move has reduced waste as students no longer take more food that they can eat. The effort, spearheaded by students, has also helped the university “stave off rising food costs.” (Wonder if room and board charges have been reduced proportionately, with similar portions?)
