    "I love waiting in lines!" said no one, ever. 

    Food Services heard the cries and complaints of long lines in Brubakers, Student Life Centre, and realized something needed to change.  Enter the mobile ordering app. Created to service our customers and make picking up a bite to eat as easy as possible.  With a few clicks and taps, anyone can order a meal in under 30 seconds, customizing it to their liking and using their free time for more important things than standing in lines.

  1. Nov. 27, 2019I went Plant-Based for a week! Here's what I found...
    Plant VS Meat

    One of the core values that we truly believe in and try to deliver here at UWFS is providing choice to our customers. We want to make sure that everyone has a variety of food options to choose from here on campus, whether that’s accommodating for allergens, diet restrictions, religious reasons, and even picky eaters! As a student myself, I wanted to see how true this was.

    For an entire week I went plant based for my meals to find out just how many options there are for students, and let me tell you, I found some awesome lunches across campus!

    Hungry but running late to class? Want to skip the long line at lunch time at Brubakers in SLC? Can the unnecessary waiting time be used to study for tomorrow’s exam, instead?

    Then, I recommend downloading and using the recently launched UW Food Services app to pre-order food from BruBakers using a Student Watcard or a credit card to pay.
