TRU Food Services is passionate about food, including where our food comes from. Our goal is to provide delicious and affordable meals and do our best to include sustainable options such as sourcing from local suppliers, which can sometimes be a challenge in our four-season climate. As part of our dedication to adding more local items to our menus, TRU is a Feed BC Partner. Feed BC in the public post-secondary sector is a partnership initiative led by the Ministry of Agriculture and Food with the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills, and 20 public post-secondary institutions (PSIs).
TRU has reached the goal set by Feed BC of 30 percent of all food purchased being locally sourced from within BC. When visiting the retail outlets on campus, look for our local food label. All of the menu items at our retail locations that have locally sourced ingredients or are locally sourced, will be labelled as local food.
