Memorial University’s Bitters Pub on Canada’s Greenest Restaurants 2013

Memorial University is making great strides towards food systems sustainability.

In March 2013, Campus Food Systems Project Coordinators, Caitlin Colson and Sarah Archibald had the opportunity to visit Memorial University’s St. John’s Campus and see, first hand, the local food initiatives happening on campus and in the community.

CFSP Coordinators and the staff at Bitters celebrate their initiatives to become a leader in sustainable procurement and operations!

We had the chance to speak with Julie Purchase, chef at Bitters, the Graduate Student Restaurant and Lounge that is making huge strides towards connecting with local farmers and increasing sustainability in operations. With the support of the Bitters staff, the Graduate Students Union and past Campus Food Strategy Group Coordinator, Riley Pollom, Bitters is well on its way to be LEAF certified and was named one of the greenest restaurants in Canada of 2013.

There’s nothing bitter about that – Congratulations!
