Community comes together for hot dogs and hoops

MIT staff, faculty and students pitch in to serve food donated by Bon Appétit.


In celebration of the MIT's men's basketball team's successful season, Bon Appétit, MIT's house dining partner, donated 400 hot dogs to be handed out before and during halftime at the team's championship game.

Last Saturday, Feb. 25, MIT hosted the 2012 New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) men's basketball championship game where MIT defeated Springfield by five points to earn the title for the third time in four years.

"Bon Appétit was really excited to support the team in their quest for victory," said Kelly McDonald, manager of Bon Appétit at MIT.

This is just one example of Bon Appétit's charitable efforts aimed at supporting MIT and the MIT community. For more information about Bon Appétit, visit http://www.cafebonappetit.com/.
