Food Advisory Board (FAB)
The Food Advisory (FAB) is made up of a number of sub-committee groups of Waterloo students and UW Food Service staff members. The committee as a whole is committed to meeting 3 times a term to assess and evaluate UW Food Services based off their chosen subcommittee topics. Based off their research they make recommendations and influence changes within the Food Service Departments. At the same time, commit to outreach program activities (e.g. cooking shows, cultural events involving or highlighting Food Services, educational programming related to Food Services).
