ALBANY - More than 170 schools in the Capital Region closed Wednesday because of the storm. Among them, the University at Albany where classes and campus activities were cancelled. However, cafeteria staff was on hand cooking for students living in the dorms.
The head of dining services says while there were limited options Wednesday, it's still their responsibility to make sure students have enough to eat.
"We're entrusted by parents to feed students every single day – whether it's good weather or bad weather," explained Kevin D'Onofrio. "So with the onset of bad weather coming on, we put together a plan that will reduce some of our services, but still feed everybody who's on campus."
The dining halls and the campus center remain open on snow days, but the safety of employees is also taken into consideration.
