Stop the Rumor: “Chefs Are Not Putting Fibers in Student Meals”

Keion Smiley
“Freshman 15” is a term that refers to an amount of weight gained during a student’s first year at college.

There has been a bunch of speculation from students that Conrad and the Village Café are putting fibers into the food to help with the students’ digestive process. David Campbell, a senior at Delaware State University states, “Nine times out of ten, when I leave Conrad, my stomach is either burning or almost burning. I try to stay away from junk foods and get some veggies on my plate.”

Arlene Eason, who runs the sandwich and salad section at Conrad, tells students that she has not seen any Chefs put fibers into the foods and tells them to “stay away from junk foods and get a sandwich made with love and to stick with the fruits.”

Ms. Sheba, who also works at Conrad, denies the rumors, saying that no fibers are placed into meals and observes that, “many students are used to the way they were eating at home- they come here and pig out. Eating a bunch of junk food and then coming in here eating hot dogs and hamburgers in large portions- of course their stomach would bother them.”

If you’re hungry and need some nutrition, head on over to Conrad or the Village Café during their operating hours.
