Greetings from the Food Services Coordinator

Welcome! Our mandate in Food Services is to pair fun, appetizing food at reasonable prices with great service. We serve thousands of students, staff, faculty and visitors every week and take pride in providing an eclectic range of dining and catering choices that meet a diversity of individual needs. 

You’ll find our dedicated and talented team in Saskatchewan Polytechnic cafeterias, kitchens and dining rooms. Behind the scenes, we plan and fine-tune our menus so that they reflect contemporary, fresh food trends.

We also work closely with students in Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Professional Cooking, Hotel and Restaurant Administration and Food and Nutrition Management programs. It's a win-win relationship resulting in unparalleled training opportunities for them and one-of-a-kind dining events for you.

Bon appétit!
