Our third concept going into DC BYTES is... ROLLTATION! 

Fun name! What's Rolltation all about? 

Rolltation is Toronto's premier sushi burrito restaurant, and we at University of Waterloo will have the FIRST Rolltation outside of Toronto...ever! 

So, it makes sushi burritos?

Being well hydrated means that we are taking in enough fluids to replace those lost through sweat, breathing and normal body functions. This is especially important in the summer because heat and humidity can significantly increase fluid losses — especially if you’re spending a lot of time outdoors.

There were TWO Tim Hortons in the Davis Centre and now there are NONE, what is happening? 

In order to offer more choice and options to you, we are making some changes.  The Tim Hortons what was next to the old Bon Appetit (now DC BYTES) is being converted into a new beverage franchise.  We will update you more on that in the future. 

What's going on in the Davis Centre?

Food Services is working hard to bring you awesome, innovative and new concepts that will tickle your taste buds and leave you with that warm, full feeling we all crave.

According to the Commission for Environmental Cooperation, Canada is one of the worst countries in the world when it comes to food waste. About 40% of the food produced in Canada is wasted, that’s $31 billion in food waste! This food waste further goes to landfills and generates methane, a gas that is 25 times more hazardous for the environment than carbon dioxide!

How can buying locally benefit the environment?

Fresh vegetables

Local food is food that is grown within a geographical region that is considered local to your specific area. This can be food grown in your city, neighbourhood, or home! There are various health and economic benefits of buying locally grown food. For instance, it promotes food safety and supports the local economy, but have you ever wondered how buying local could benefit the environment?

Environmental Benefits of a Vegan Diet

Green vegetables

Have you ever wondered how a plant-based diet could help combat global warming? The greatest contributor to the cause is human activity, to reduce this we often do small daily tasks such as taking the bus or walking to campus instead of driving, but changing your diet to one that’s vegan is a whole different way to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, conserve water, and even protect habitats and species.
