UBC Food Services
UBC Food Services is committed to becoming a leader in food sustainability on campus and in the wider community. Food Services provide a diverse selection of fresh, delicious, and memorable food experiences in a socially and ecologically conscious manner. In fact, more than 60% of their ingredients are purchased from local producers (within 400km of UBC) like the UBC Farm.
If you’ve purchased your meal on campus lately, you may have come across a label indicating whether what you are about to consume is climate-friendly. The Climate-Friendly Food Label has been tested and is at select food outlets across UBC campus. The label provides an opportunity for the campus community to make informed purchasing decisions that can promote a climate-friendly food system.
