Facilities & Food Service


At St John's we value the importance of sharing in a meal or refreshment, breaking bread.

This coming together, over food and drink, is important in sustaining something that defines us, community, whether this takes place in our residence, the Daily Bread Cafe, espresso 101, our Senior Common Room or at a catered event, Our food services reinforce this underlying value by offering reasonably priced, professionally presented, wholesome and varied menu choices.

The Tiffin project.

In September 2014 we worked with  Professor Kelley Main and her class from the Asper Business program. The Marketing class heard a lecture from both Ian Hall the university's Director of Sustainability and I. Ian Hall spoke about the challenges of managing waste on campus. I spoke about how the Daily Bread Cafe is promoting the Tiffin as a way to reduce the waste generated from styrofoam take-out containers. Based on that lecture, the group assignment was to develop a marketing plan for the Tiffin and the college's food service in general.
