At York we support initiatives that move the food system in a better direction. Numerous eateries serve locally grown produce that’s fresh and tasty, as well as cage-free eggs. Fair trade certified coffee, including York’s own Las Nubes from Costa Rica, is available across campus. Want to help reduce packaging waste? Join our Eco-Takeout program and get your food to go in a reusable container.

Our sustainability programs can save you money, too! Bring your travel mug to participating locations and get a discount on your coffee and tea purchases.  Or use one of the many water bottle refill stations to fill your bottle with refreshing cold, filtered water at no charge! As of September 2015, York will be a plastic bottle free campus. Find out more information here:


Valid at participating locations across campuses:
Glendon, Stong, Winters, TEL, Central Square, Tim Hortons, Starbucks, Osgoode Bistro, Freshii, The POD and The Market.
