Chili is the perfect for cold weather comfort food, and the Bay View Café is featuring a house-made chili bar this week for employees to warm up with. Also, starting Wednesday, staff who eat in the cafeteria are invited to fill out comment cards, which will be available on all tables. When you’re done filling them out, deposit them in the box near the coffee station. The feedback will help café managers make improvements to food and service.
