GROSSMONT COLLEGE – With pricing at the Sodexo outlet a matter of campus controversy, the Summit staff decided to see what other nearby off-campus food outlets are charging.   We went to the Subway and to the Fresh & Easy market to see if we could find items matching those on sale at Sodexo.  

Not all the items could be directly compared.   In the chart below, a blank space indicates that we were unable to find a matching item at this outlet.

The comparisons were made in the  second week of October 2010.  Prices may change.
