FlikDash: Is It All That?

Since the limits on food delivery to school grounds were announced last May, many students have been left without the option to order food outside of school as they usually did before the ban. This year, PDS’s Student Council announced that they were creating a new food delivery service—FlikDash—in response to the restrictions on food delivery. Students can FlikDash by downloading the Nutrislice app on their phone. They must first make an account. Then, they may FlikDash at any time of the day and pick up their food during C&C. There are many exciting options for students to choose from: chicken parmesan sandwiches, tater tots, cheese steaks, corn dogs, and the list goes on. 

As President of the Student Council, senior Aadi Shankar was an essential voice in spearheading the FlikDash service. Shankar says his priority when creating the program “was to work with FLIK to create a menu that reflected what students wanted when they ordered food from delivery services.” Shankar also expressed his plans to allow students to FlikDash outside C&C: “The program is currently in pilot, but once we can figure out the logistics, other time periods will be opened.” Though the menu is still expanding, Shankar highly recommends the waffle fries to students as they are his favorite item.

Junior Sophie Takano, a former PDS’s Food Advisory Board member, has also tried out various foods from FlikDash. Similarly to Shankar, Takano’s favorite items on the menu are the spicy waffle fries and tater tots since they have “a blend of savory and spicy flavor” and “a crispy texture.” Takano also thinks the chicken sandwiches on the menu are underrated and likes them because of their spicy flavor. Though Takano enjoys some of the current items on the menu, she wishes it could expand to have more types of food. She also stated, “There are other times during the day that aren’t C&C where [she] craves food that isn’t offered at the snack bar,” and she is hopeful that FlikDash will include more time slots to order food in the future.

With the ban on food delivery services such as DoorDash and Uber Eats, FlikDash is a helpful alternative for students. Though FlikDash is likely to expand in the future, it seems that for now, PDS students will enjoy the crowd-pleasing favorite, the waffle fries, along with many other highly-rated items.
