When the truck arrives at a site, volunteers place the food on tables surrounding the truck. Clients are then able to "shop" free of charge, choosing items that they need.

The game that the administration has been playing with the Contingent Faculty Union in the last few bargaining sessions is a classic example of what biologists call “aggressive mimicry.” In its public statements, the administration assumes the mask of an eminently reasonable, patient and level-headed bargaining partner who has only the best interests of the college at heart and is forever “surprised” and “disappointed” by the inexplicable recalcitrance of the Contingent Faculty Union.
