UNBC currently contracts the services of a campus vendor who is the sole provider of Retail Food Services, Dining Hall Services and Catering at the University outside of spaces operated by the Northern Undergraduate Student Society (NUGGS). With the University's current vendor contract set to expire soon, the Business Services department is taking this opportunity to engage with the UNBC community to explore the future of food on campus.
The management of the Food Services contract on campus is the responsibility of Business Services, who are accountable to the University to report and garner feedback. The department sets the expectation for the contractor based on campus feedback and within the terms of the current contract.
To assist with engagement activities, Business Services has established a Food Services Guiding team, whose members represent all aspects of the UNBC community. The team will work to maximize consultation efforts to obtain a diverse range of feedback that will inform the Business Services team and aid in decision-making about the future of food services at the UNBC Prince George campus. Consultation efforts are designed to ensure that the University creates a new food services plan that aligns with community culture and meets the unique needs and preferences of students, faculty and staff while adhering to growth and innovation in food service practices.
