Food and community are inseparable
There is an important connection between food and community.
Food shapes our health. It fuels our success in class and at work. It is part of who we are and our diverse cultures. It supports the vibrant campus life TRU has committed to build. That’s why we deserve a voice in shaping our campus food services!
At TRU, the vast majority of food services are provided by one contracted company. The current contract is set to expire in April 2018. After a five-year contract term, this a unique opportunity to rethink the future of food at TRU.
TRU is holding a food service consultation
The Hungry for Choice campaign has successfully secured a consultation to take advantage of this opportunity and give the campus community a voice.
On December 08, 2017, the campaign presented the TRU Board of Governors with 1,691 petition signatures from students, faculty, and staff, as well as endorsements from twenty-eight campus groups requesting a full consultation on the food service contract. The Board agreed!
How to participate
Getting a consultation is an important first step. We now have the chance to be heard, and we will need to make the most of it. The university administration is developing a consultation plan, which is expected to be announced in January 2018.
