Machine takes ‘Byte’ out of hunger at hospital cafe

Ken Derienzo, manager of Morrison Food Service at Alton Memorial Hospital, puts a credit card in the “Byte” machine in the Alton Memorial Hospital café. The machine was installed to serve employees, physicians and visitors during the hours when the nearby café’s serving line is not open. “We have mostly salads, sandwiches, parfait items and fruit cups in there,” said Ken Derienzo, manager of Morrison at AMH. “It’s a great convenience for people who want a quick bite to eat when the line isn’t open. The doors from the hallway into the café are always unlocked, so they can come in anytime and get something.” The café recently underwent a renovation and has reopened with a brighter look, new equipment in the serving area, a new condiment bar and some bar-style chairs and counters in the dining area.
