Mirroring a national employee deficit in the food industry, Elon University is experiencing staffing shortages in its dining halls. These shortages create dish build-up, delays in mobile orders and more work for employees. 

One dining worker, Kevin Taylor, has worked with Aramark Corporation since August 2004. Taylor, a dishwasher in Lakeside Dining Hall, has seen the staffing shortages have led to dishes piled in the hallways of Lakeside’s kitchen. Videos courtesy of Kevin Taylor.
