SFU Burnaby is taking food for its post-secondary students up a notch thanks to a new culinary contract with Canadian foodservice company Chartwells.
The BC university describes the plans for the partnership as a new “world-class” student-first dining experience.

“We are extremely proud to bring our new vision to the SFU community,” says Chartwells President Ashton Sequeira. “We believe in partnering with the community to engage and inspire students. I’m excited about the strategic partnerships that we have and the new ones we will be forming to demonstrate our new approach at SFU.
At the centre of the new program is a partnership with Vancouver celebrity chef and SFU alumnus Vikram Vij.
In a release, SFU said Vij will be at the helm of directing the menu for special events on campus and even display his cooking and teaching with students.
“At SFU, our focus is on student success and we work passionately to provide high-quality education, exceptional student experiences and community engagement opportunities,” said SFU’s vice president, finance and administration, Martin Pochurko.
