You may know what's in the bag, but how does it get there?

Ever wondered if HUDS actually has those legendary underground tunnels for channeling soups and sauces to various dining halls? Or pondered whether your breakfast pizza is actually just last night’s dinner drenched in a copious portion of scrambled eggs? If so, you’re in luck: the UC is now raffling off tickets to behind-the-scenes tours of house kitchens, no gold wrapper required. Find out how to win a foray backstage after the jump.

According to UC weekly newsletter, two of the HUDS tours will be open to the general student body, and will be held on Friday, April 10 and Tuesday, April 14 at 10 a.m.

Judging from the e-mail, the opportunity may not be appropriate for those with delicate stomachs:

“Sign up to go beyond the servery and see how Dining Services makes your food. If you want to know how the food you eat every day is prepared starting from Step 1, this is the tour for you!”

Unless reading The Jungle was a particularly uplifting experience, FlyBy would caution students against, ahem, partaking in this opportunity. As Anna M. Yeung ’12 puts it, “I have nothing to gain. I would probably just lose my appetite.”

Students can enter the lottery by filling out a survey by Wednesday, April 8 at 11:59 p.m.
