Cal Poly Campus Dining partnered with Grubhub to combat the spread of COVID-19, according to the Campus Dining Website. With this partnership, Cal Poly Corporation is paying for the transaction fee, which was also reduced.
Students order on their phone and then choose whether to pay with their dining dollars or a separate credit card. They can track the progress of their order and receive a message when it is ready. The app also gives a rough estimate of when the food is going to be ready. The university itself is not covering the cost, but Cal Poly Corporation is covering the transaction fee, according to Cal Poly Corporation communications specialist Aaron Lambert.
Cal Poly Corporation is a nonprofit university auxiliary that supports Cal Poly, according to Lambert. Their services include Campus Dining, the University Store, and Cal Poly Downtown along with many others, according to their website.
