Feeling peckish?

Have your say in Memorial's 2016 Food Survey until May 9

Campus and Community

By Laura Barron

Until May 9, you can have your say as to which food services and retail outlets Memorial offers.

Memorial has launched a survey for students, faculty and staff which focuses on the food and other services available on the St. John’s campus. The primary aim of the survey is to gather information about how current food services are faring and to determine what other types and brands of food service establishments are desired.

The results of this survey will help guide improvements to overall services for the university community as they relate to units within Ancillary Operations.

“Feedback on what kind of coffee and which food outlets people want, how well our vending program is working, and how the Bookstore is connecting, is critical to helping us restructure and to continually improve our overall operations,” said Rex Coffin, director, Ancillary Operations.

The lease currently held by Mrs. Vanelli’s in the University Centre food court ends this spring. Mr. Coffin sees this as an opportunity to collect feedback from the campus community to help determine what would be a welcome addition to the food court.

“There is an opportunity now to put a new vendor in the University Centre, so we want to hear what type of food outlet the campus community would most like to see. Beyond that, we want to hear what people would like to see across campus in terms of retail outlets to help guide the decision-making process and to ensure we align with what the campus wants and needs, now and into the future.”

The survey is open to all students, faculty and staff until May 9. Have your say here!
