Guilford Dining

Guilford College and culinary partner Meriwether Godsey team together to provide all dining services for the campus. This alliance is a real partnership and we work together to provide fabulous food, true service, and strong stewardship.

Our Mission

…to take care of each guest as if they are our only one.
Beyond carefully and creatively preparing meals, every day; this means gracious service and strong stewardship of all our resources: natural, financial, and people.

Our Commitment

We will look at ourselves and our operation through your eyes. This means anticipating what you want or need before even you realize it! Call it clairvoyance? We call it Hospitality.

It’s not just about food

Meals should involve more than the act of eating.
They should be an experience. Memorable, tasty, fun, satisfying.

Scratch Cooking

“Scratch” is defined as “from the beginning.”  We have always believed this is the right way to cook .  Many of our salad dressings, soups, sauces, composed salads and sides, entrees, breads and desserts are made from scratch.  In addition, we offer selections that are locally scratch made by friends of Guilford — like artisan breads and pastries. Without exception, our chefs are passionate about cooking and are remarkably creative so this expectation is part of Meriwether Godsey’s essence.

Student-Centric Approach

If the students aren’t happy, nobody’s happy.  It is our commitment to serve food that makes students happy.  The saying goes:  “feedback is the breakfast of champions.”  We want Guilford Dining to be a winner, so we want your feedback. In this business the customer is always right and our answer should rarely be “no.”   If you want to meet with our staff to discuss special events, new food ideas, or to tell us about a meal that didn’t go quite right, you will find open doors and open minds.
