Food Services

All food services associated with the Cafeteria at Berkner Hall (Building 488), Brookhaven Café in Building 400 and micro-markets in Building 400 and 740 are closed and not available at this time.

While long-term solutions for on-site food service are being evaluated and will be shared with staff over the next few weeks, there are some short-term actions we are taking to help ensure staff have access to food services.

  • Free coffee and tea will be provided from 7:30-10:30 a.m. and 1:00-3:30 p.m. daily in the cafeteria area.
  • Food delivery options - See list below of local businesses offering delivery and/or order/pick up options.

To start, as just one example, individuals or groups can order food to be delivered by external businesses or through apps like GrubHub or DoorDash.

Note: vending services will still be available.

Here's how this will work:

  • Individuals place an order through these apps or directly from local restaurants.
  • If ordering in advance, please submit a Visitor Notification Form for further ease in entering the Lab. This will enable much easier/quicker access into the site.
  • Those delivery personnel that are U.S. Citizens that don’t have a gate pass (i.e., Visitor Notification Form was not submitted) will be allowed to make the delivery as follows:
    • Upon arrival at the Main Gate, the delivery person will be directed to the trailer and asked to present a valid driver's license.
    • The driver will get a parking pass and map.
    • The pass will note the destination building, date/time, and person ordering the delivery.
    • The driver will be instructed to make the delivery and then leave the site.
    • They will be asked to stop at the security booth as they exit and return the pass.
  • Those delivery personnel that are NOT U.S. Citizens will be instructed to remain at the main gate area until Conference Services staff can be contacted to assist with the food delivery (i.e., obtain food from vendor delivery personnel and transport to customer building during regular business hours). Delivery personnel that are NOT U.S. Citizens will not be allowed past the main gate area into the BNL site.

Vending Services

Vending service machines are located (pdf) in high population areas throughout the site. Available items include snacks and beverages.

Vending Services are provided to the Laboratory through the New York State Commission for the Blind. It is very important that the level of service and the products, meet or exceed customer expectations. Please contact Guest Services at (631) 344-3545 or email with any issues, comments, or suggestions.
