Amanda Tutor ‘01, director of Chartwells, the dining service provider at Northland College, never intended on making food her career, but then her first student job at Northland was working in the food service office. She liked it so much, she worked there all four years and then stayed.
“I enjoy pleasing people and food does that in many ways,” she said. “I find joy in every meal that we serve and every event that we host, watching people smile and connect.”
Tutor has watched the food culture on campus change a few times over from the small cafeteria that existed when she first came to Northland to the beautiful big dining area with local produce, meat, vegan and vegetarian options, and cooked-on-the-spot meals.
“In my college years you had like four options, salad bar, deli, and a hot entrée like meat lasagna or cheese lasagna,” she said. “I think now we care so much more about who our farmers are and where our food is coming from.”
