Sustainability Practices

Farm To Campus Fresh

  • We support as many as 75 local farmers
  • We own and operate the Village Bakery, which supplies our cafés and eateries with fresh daily bagels, pastries and treats.
  • We provide plant-based options in all our cafés and eateries including an all vegan menu at FRSH.
  • Our Chef’s use fresh local ingredients to create dishes that are prepared from scratch in our kitchens.
  • We support our customer’s health by promoting fresh nutritious foods to the campus community.

HeForShe campaign

UW Food Services will sell IMPACT coffee in various locations, with proceeds from each cup going to University of Waterloo’s HeForShe campaign.

IMPACT coffee features aromatic notes of caramel and freshly baked bread, with subtle hints of granola and dark chocolate in the flavour.  Pleasant acidity and full bodied, from the Northern Highlands of Peru.

Fair Trade Certified

All of our Baden Coffee & Planet Bean Coffee are Fair Trade Certified! We also carry Four O'Clock, a Fair Trade certified tea in all locations offering tea.
