    A robot will soon be serving up salads to students and faculty at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts.

    "Sally the Robot" will make its debut Sept. 3 in the Hogan Campus Center.

    Created by Silicon Valley-based food robotics company Chowbotics, Sally will eventually offer custom meal options of up to 22 ingredients which will include pre-programmed salads, grain bowls and breakfast bowls. For now, Sally will serve salads, with the bowls to be added at a later date, according to the company.

    "We're thrilled to help Holy Cross provide health, forward-thinking food service options for their students," founder and CEO of Chowbotics Deepak Sekar said in a news release. "Sally will bring nourishment day and night to those studying, visiting or working at Holy Cross."
