Who Are We

UeaT is the student-focused face of Food Services at the University of Toronto.

We oversee more than 30 locations across the St. George campus and run programs like the Local Food Challenge, Veggie Mondays and a handful of environmental initiatives.

Even if you haven’t seen us at one of our many annual events, you’ve probably seen our vegan, vegetarian, halal or gluten-free labels around campus.

So spread the word and tell the world just how important food is to you! Show your support for a new vision of what food can be at U of T!
