Pursuant to the Connecticut Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"), I hereby request the following records:

A copy of the recipe for the Bacon Jalapeño Macaroni and Cheese dish served by the University of Connecticut’s Dining Services. Requested records include a list of ingredients and any instructions for preparation and serving.

The existence of the Bacon Jalapeño Macaroni and Cheese recipe has been widely reported by news media, following a recent video in which a University of Connecticut student can be seen physically fighting with University staff because he wants to eat Bacon Jalapeño Macaroni and Cheese:




I also request that, if possible and pursuant to Conn. Gen. Stat. § 1-212(d), fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest and not made for commercial gain. The requested documents will be processed by a representative of the news media/press and made available to the public at MuckRock.com.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 4 business days, as the statute requires.
