Full of Flavor Food Itenary

Dear UeaTers,

This is going to be a very exciting week on campus. We know that you have too many assignments due on the same date, and no time to think about food. That is why we have made a FULL OF FLAVOR AND NUTRITION FOOD ITENARY for you to follow this week.


Monday, February 8, 2010: To kick off Aboriginal Awareness Week, First Nations House is serving lunch at 12:00pm. Check out their calendar for events lined up all week!



Bring $3.00 (plus tax) to Medical Sciences Building Cafeteria, Robarts Cafeteria, Sid’s Café, Veda in Sanford Fleming, Howard Ferguson Dining Hall at UC, or Sammy’s at Hart House, and try some Aboriginal Soup. We are serving a Three Sisters Soup with Corn Biscuit.

You may be wondering, who are the three sisters, and what are they doing in your soup? The Three Sisters are crops native to some Aboriginal cultures: squash,  beans and corn. They are called the three sisters because they are usually planted close to each other, because each one helps the other grow. You can find the full description on their Wikipedia page.

Wednesday, February 10, 2010: Between 2:30pm and 5:30pm, stop by the U of T Farmer’s Market with your reusable mug and some cash. You can pick up cheese from all over Canada, chocolate bars, bread and fresh produce. And while you are there, enjoy a cup of ChocoSol’s amazing hot chocolate.

Thursday, February 11, 2010: CHINESE NEW YEAR LUNCH

$6.95 (plus tax) will get you Barbequed Pork with Steamed Rice and Sautéed Bok Choy at the following locations: Victoria College, Trinity College, Howard Ferguson Dining Hall at UC, Medical Sciences Building Cafeteria, Robarts Cafeteria and Sid’s Café.

Sammy’s at Hart House will serve Chicken Chow Mein.

Chestnut Residence (open to all U of T members) will also be serving a Chinese menu included in their all-you-care-to-eat menu.

The Fresh Food Company at New College, from 11:30am to 1:30pm, will serve a special menu which includes chicken balls and pineapple tapioca.

Friday, February 12, 2010: Stop by Veda in Sanford Fleming for some healthy Indian food.


With such a food-filled week ahead, we wish you nutrition and energy to help you study for those assignments and tests!
