With power still out and students getting hungry, Harvard University Dining Services is offering partial meals and directing students to Quad dining halls, a HUDS chef said Thursday afternoon.

According to a Harvard Alert, Annenberg, Mather House, and Dunster House dining halls are also serving food.

Others, like Adams, Leverett, Lowell, and Kirkland, are serving pre-cooked and cold foods.

Adams House chef Arlene Richburg said HUDS officials held a conference call around 5 p.m., shortly after the beginning of dining hall dinner hours, to develop a plan of action.

Quad Houses, who still have power, have opened their dining halls to students living in the Yard or in river Houses.

"We're just moving food around to make sure everybody gets a meal," Richburg said.

Cambridge police tweeted around 5 p.m. that it would take several hours to restore power.
